Leang Hun is 25 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and one child in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been selling meatballs for more than two years, earning approximately 14 USD per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) helps her run the business. Leang Hun requests a loan of 1,500 USD to purchase a tri-cycle for transporting meatballs to sell. This purchase will help her easily transport meatballs to sell in the local community. In the future, she would like to run a meatball shop and send her child to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house in five years.
