Mrs. Thy S. lives in Ping Pong Village in Kandal Province. She is 46 and is a fruit seller in the local market. She is a widow with a child who works in a garment factory. Lately she has had problems selling her fruit which lasted too many days and got spoiled so that it could not be sold any longer. Last year, she obtained a loan from Acleda Bank to buy pigs to breed. Now she also asks for a loan from AMK to buy soil to fill in the house yard to prevent floods during the rainy season.
