Srey Pov (who is in the picture with her son) is 31 years old. She is married, and lives with three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
She has been involved in the agricultural business for more than 10 years, has extensive experience, and is successful in her career. She is involved in cultivating rice and fattening up animals. She earns approximately $2 per day.
Her husband runs a public transportation service (Tuk Tuk). He earns about $20 each day. Because the existing Tuk Tuk trailer is old, Srey Pov is requesting a loan of $800 to purchase a new Tuk Tuk trailer for her husband to run the service. This purchase will help him obtain a new vehicle, and attract more customers.
In the future, she would like to run a grocery store at home, and send her children to a good school. She hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
