Meas M., 24, is single and lives with her mom and her sister in Takeo province. She is shown with her mom in the photo. Meas M. is a farmer, while her sister is a professional tailor, both of them typically making about US$4.50 each day.

The weather conditions have been difficult for farming in Cambodia this past year and inflation has also been out of control. These factors have played into a difficult economic year for many Cambodians, Meas M. included.

In light of these economic difficulties, Meas M. is asking for a loan of US$750 to purchase a sewing machine for her sister. This will allow the family to expand its daily revenue.
