Mrs. Sok V., 39, is as widow and has started business selling various kinds of grocery products since 2000 to the people in her community and typically makes around $4 per day in revenue. She has two children aged 15 and 10 who are enrolled in a primary school. Each month she spends around $30 on food, $10 on utilities and $50 for her children’s education.

A diligent mother, Mrs. Sok V. has to work very hard and to make sure that she can afford her family’s expenses. In the past she was a businesswoman who worked near the Thai border but because her son got seriously ill she decided to give up her business and came back home to look after her son and other kids. When she was back home she opened a grocery store.

Now she is asking for a loan to purchase more grocery products to expand her inventory. Her customers' demands are growing so she has to increase her products to meet their needs.
