Neang is 52 years old. She is married and resides with a mute child in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fruits for more than a year, earning approximately $10 daily. Her husband is a motor taxi driver who makes an income of $4 daily.
In order to improve her business, Neang is requesting a loan of $1,500 to purchase more fruits for resale. By doing so, she would earn more profit to support her family. In the future, she would like to expand her store and build a new house as soon as possible.
