Moth L., 36, is a low-income person living in Siem Reap Province. She is a good and determined single mother who tries to feed her five children, even though she is recently divorced from her husband. She has one married child who lives separately, while the remainder are staying in family home and working in a variety of jobs.
Moth L. sells fresh fish in the market to earn a living. Every day in the late morning, Moth L. goes to a place that is full of fisherman to buy fish in bulk. Then she hurries to bring the fish to the market, which she sells them retail. Because her income is just enough for family’s daily expenses, her house is frequently cracking during the heavy rainy season. To solve this problem, she is requesting a loan of $400 to repair her old house.
