Mrs. Chanthy H., 58, is a widow with five children – three sons and two daughters. One is married and lives outside the family home, one is a soldier, two assist their mother in the business, and one is a cell phone vendor. The family lives along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Chanthy is a jasmine farmer. She hopes to supplement her income with a new business raising chickens, so she is asking for her first loan of $1,000 to purchasing chickens and chicken feed, and to build a chicken coop.
