Mrs. Yoeun C. (pictured in her grocery store), 62 years old, is a widow with one son and four daughters. Two of them are married and live outside the family home and the other three work in a factory. They live in a small village about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Yoeun has been selling groceries for 10 years. She buys grocery items from Phnom Penh market for resale at her home. She hopes to purchase more grocery items to better respond to her customer’s needs, so she is asking for her first loan of $1,000 to use for that purpose.
