Un is 44 years old. She is married and resides with her three children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fruits for more than two years, earning approximately 10 USD per day. Her husband, who joins her in the picture, helps her run the business. In order to improve her family’s finances, Un is requesting a loan of 1,200 USD to purchase more fruits for resale. By doing so, she would be able to earn more profits. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees.
