Samphors is 23 years old. She is married and resides with her parents and one child in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband (who is with her in the picture) runs a business selling ice cream and ice coffee. He earns about $3 per day.
In order to improve her husband’s business, Samphors is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase a motorbike and a trailer for her husband to carry ice cream and ice coffee to sell around the village. This purchase will help him generate more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand the business and send her child to a good school.
