Hang is 56 years old, married and devoted to her two married children. She stays at home to manage the family housework and also sells some fruit to her villagers at the Reussey Keo commune for income. She is married to 57-year-old Sis, who helps support the family by working as a security guard. Hang thinks that it is time to sustain her investment's growth and look for extra revenue which she proposes to do by selling fruit at the market. She wants to buy a larger quantity of fruit to sell to retailers in the market, but she complains that she doesn’t have enough money to make it possible. Hence, Hang would like to ask for a loan to purchase a large amount of fruit to sell.
