Sam Oeurn is 54 years old. She is married and resides with six children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fruit for more than a year, earning approximately $25 daily. Her husband is a motor taxi driver who earns about $6 each day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Sam Oeurn is requesting a loan of $1000 to raise capital for her business to buy more fruit to resell. This money will help her expand the business and earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to fill up her land and help her children earn higher education degrees.
