Mrs. Savan S. (in the picture with her daughter), 46, is a widow with two daughters. One of her daughters is married and lives outside the family home and another one is assisting her with the vegetable-selling business. Savan also has an old mother who is living with her. The family lives along national road number one about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Savan has been selling vegetables for 21 years. She buys them from the villagers for resale at a market in Phnom Penh. She has only one shop for selling vegetables. She hopes to expand her business to become bigger and bigger, therefore she is asking for her first loan of $1,200 to purchase one more shop for her daughter and to purchase vegetables on contract for resale.
