This the second time Mrs. Ouch S. is requesting a loan to improve her business. She sells vegetables in the local market located in Phsar Leur Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Previously, Mrs. Ouch S. had obtained a loan from AMK to start her current business and she has fully paid it back. Because her business is prospering, Mrs. Ouch S. decided to ask for a loan to buy more vegetables to better satisfy her customers. Her husband, Mr. Um Sarom, is a motorbike taxi driver who earns some money to help support the family. Mrs. Ouch S. is 45 years old and the mother of three children who are all attending school. Her husband is shown on the right in the photo.
