Nheap is 57 years old. She is a vegetable seller with her husband. Their income is $8 per day. They have six children, and they are 30, 28, 25, 23, 21, and 17 years old. Five of them are studying and one is working in an organization for $7 per day.
Every month, she has to spend $85 on food, $15 on utilities, $70 on school fees, $25 on transportation and $19 for other expenses.
She would like to request a loan of $700 to buy rice seed and other seeds for planting to sell.
She wants to send all of her children to study until they finish university, so she needs to make more income to keep for them when they need it for their school fees.
