Mrs. Meoun S. is 38 years old, married to Sovann, 55. They have three school-aged children who are dependent on them. The couple sells recycled goods. They buy used goods door-to-door around their community and sell them to a wholesaler, who then sells the goods in bulk to other countries. The used goods they deal in are mostly leftover electrical wires, plastics, and cans. The family's living conditions are not comfortable because their house is too old and broken. Meoun S. is asking for a loan to mend their old house.
