Ros, 37, has been selling souvenirs in Siem Reap town since 2002 and is able to make about US$10 per day. She is a widow with three young school-aged children. Currently, she lives with her younger sister, Ryai, who works at the souvenir shop.
Ros would like to take out a loan of US$1500 to purchase more souvenirs to sell and the leftover money will be used to rebuild her house.
