Sophy (in the photo) and her husband, Nun, sell mangoes. They buy mangoes under contract from fellow villagers before harvest season and, when the mangoes are fully grown, they take them to sell at the local market.

The couple has been married since 1982 and they have five children. The family is living in a village approximately 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Sophy needs to use pesticides to prevent mangoes from being eaten by insects. Hence, she is applying for a loan in the amount of $500.
