Mrs. Thavy K., 36, and her husband, Mr. Ka Hin, 45, who live in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers north of Phnom Penh, were married in 1988 and have six children, three sons and three daughters. Five of them are in local school and the youngest one stays at home.

Thavy has been a fruit seller for twenty-eight years. She buys many kinds of fruits from her village and other nearby villages and resells them in Phnom Penh. Mr. Hin used to work at a printing house for thirteen years but now he has stopped to create his own business with a taxi. He just bought one van for driving as a taxi but lacks some money for another.

Thavy is requesting a loan of US$1000 to purchase fruits to resell and to buy one van for her husband to drive as a taxi.
