Mrs. Moeun K., age 31, sells used clothes at the busy local market in the province of Battambang. From that she is able to earn about $5 a day to support her family. She has been married for many years to Mr. Loerk Sarat, 37, a motor taxi driver, and they have four children, all of whom are single and still living under their roof.
Recently Mrs. Moeun K. sold nearly all her inventory to her buyers and she wants to replenish her stock, but she lacks capital. Therefore, she is asking for a loan in order to purchase more clothes to resell.
