Mut P., age 50, is married and has four children. She lives with her husband and children in Takeo province. To make a living, she is engaged in the agriculture sector as a rice field farmer, earning approximately $1.5 USD per day. Her husband is a local primary school teacher, earning an income of $5 USD per day, which is the family's primary source of income. The family is also assisted by two of the children who have a sewing business that generates an income of $3 USD each.

The financial crisis has been difficult for business in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for much of the country, including P.. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of these economic difficulties, P. is seeking to increase her income. She is asking for a loan of $1000 USD to purchase items for her children's sewing business. By doing so, she hopes she will be able to generate more income and save more money to reach a good standard of living.
