Vet, 33 years old, is a grocery seller. Her husband is a guard at Angkor Wat temple. Their income is $7 per day. They have three children; one is also a guard but in different place from his father.
Every month, Vet spends around $66 on expenses for the family. She would like to request a loan of $600 to buy columns for repairing her house. Her house is so short that it makes her feel uncomfortable to stay and hard to keep things in a proper place. She wants to buy more goods to sell as now she has little inventory and does not meet the needs of the customers. For her children, she commits to send them to study until they finish university.
