Ai Sas, 27 years-old, is married, and resides with her husband and her mother in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She is a garment worker. Her husband is a blacksmith who produces knives, swords and axes to sell. Ai Sas is requesting a loan of USD 600 in order to purchase more steel for her husband to produce more knives and axes to sell for his clients. In the future, she would like to expand her husband's business by investing more money to run a shop which sell knives, swords and axes. Moreover, she plans to build a new house next year.
