Pisey is 43 years old. She is married and blessed with two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been selling food for more than a year, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband runs a taxi service and earns about $6 daily. One of her children is a construction worker who earns about $8 each day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Pisey is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase rice and utensils to use in her business. This purchase would enable her to expand her business and generate more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her store and send her youngest child to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
