Saroeurn is 42 years old. She is widowed and resides with four siblings in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up animals for more than ten years. In addition, she runs a grocery store at home. She earns about $3 each day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Saroeurn is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase more groceries to sell. By doing so, she would be able to generate more profit to financially support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house.
