Mrs. Pho M., 47, is married and lives in the Kampong Cham district of Cambodia. Currently, Pho M. herself does not work, but her husband, 50, runs a small stall charging vehicle batteries. Pho M. has applied for this loan so that she can buy speakers and musical instruments to rent out to the people in her area. She believes that there is demand for this as people like to play instruments on special occasions but do not want to buy them as they are not useful enough during the year.
