Em S. is 38 years old and lives with her husband in the Kampong Chhnang province. She is a good housewife, living at home and looking after her two children. Her husband, pictured here, is a moto-taxi driver who is able to make about US $3 of profit every day. This couple also is supported by the children who are garment factory workers. Em S. would like to take out a loan of US $1000 as her husband needs to purchase a taxi. This will allow her husband to earn more than before.
