Srey Leay is 33 years old, a married woman with four children who lives in Takeo Province. To earn a living, she works as a factory laborer and her husband works as a construction laborer. Both of them can earn $9 per day. Srey Leay would like to apply for loan of $700 to buy land for farming. This loan will help her to earn more income as well as to improve her standard of living.
