Pheam V., 33, lives in the Takeo province with her husband and three young children. She makes about US$5 daily, selling groceries, while her husband makes US$3 as a moto-taxi driver. She is asking for a loan of US$800 to purchase more groceries to expand her current shop. She is also hoping to purchase a pig to raise and sell with the money from the loan. She sees this loan as a great opportunity to expand her business and is confident that she will see her income increase as a result.
