Vary (pictured in the photo), 45 years old, sells fish in Phnom Penh market. Her husband, Sarat, is a 47-year-old rice and lotus farmer. They live in a village along National Road number five, which is approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1990, and they have five children: four sons and one daughter. Three of their children are garment workers, one attends school, and another is still too young for school.
Vary is asking for her first loan in the amount of $1,200 to assist with her husband’s farming business. Specifically, she would like to buy a motorized hand tiller.
