Srey Touch is 38 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in cultivating rice and selling groceries for more than ten years, earning approximately $2 daily. Her husband is a construction foreman. He earns about $10 each day.
In order to improve her husband’s business, Srey Touch is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase construction materials for her husband to build a flat for his client. This money will help him have enough materials for the construction.
In the future, she would like to expand the business and send her children to earn higher education.
