Orn is 33 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been cultivating agricultural crops for more than ten years, earning approximately $3 daily. Her husband sells bread. He earns about $5 per day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Orn is requesting a loan of $1000, which she will use to purchase farmland for cultivating agricultural crops. This purchase will help her increase her crop harvest, and she will earn more income for the family. Her future plans are to expand the business and to help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
