Mrs. Ou S. is a 52-year-old widowed farmer who cultivates twice a year in Khsang Thbong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She has four children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while another one is a primary school teacher who can make $30 per month to support the family. The remaining one is attending school.
Even though the family members are gainfully employed, their lives do not improve and they live in an old house. Thus, Mrs. Ou S. is requesting a loan to add to her savings to build a new house for her family.
