Tem K., 40, sells sugar cane juice from her home in Prey Veng province. She is married with two children who are still living at home. Her husband, pictured here, works as a moto-taxi driver. She typically makes about $3 US each day, and would like a loan to expand her business. In order to increase her profits, she is asking for $800 US to purchase more sugar cane to sell. Some of the loan will be used to repair her house.
