Ngam is 44 years old. He is married and resides with a daughter in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
He has been running the business of renting sound equipment and open sheds and other materials such as utensils, tables and chairs for wedding parties and funerals for more than seven years, earning approximately $5 daily.
His wife and daughter are garment workers who earn about $6 per day.
In order to improve his business, Ngam is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase materials to build more open sheds for rental. By doing so, he would earn more income for his family. In the future, he would like to expand his business and rebuild his house to make it more convenient for his family.
