Mrs. Ruon S. N., 62, has four children and lives with her husband in Batambong province, Cambodia. She runs a stand at a local market where she earns about $3 a day selling food and groceries. She hopes to use this loan to expand the inventory of items she has to sell. (In the photograph, we see one of Mrs. Ruon S. N.'s daughters because she was unavailable when the photo was taken.)
