Suon P. is a 61-year-old widow who now lives with her two single children. She stays at home to manage the family housework as well as selling some fruit to her neighbors. Her youngest daughter also helps in the fruit-selling business. The other produces Khmer noodles at home.
Suon P. thinks that it is time to look for extra revenue, which she proposes to do by selling fruit at the market, but she lacks funds to do that. In order to deal with this issue, Suon P. would like to ask for loan to buy additional fruits for selling.
