Mrs. Suon T. owns a small store where she can sell drinks in Preak Thom village in Kandal province. Because this business is going well, she wants to expand it; so she decided to ask for a loan to buy more drinks to re-sell to her customers. She hopes she can increase her income and improve her living conditions with this loan. She is a 38-year-old widow with three children – two of whom are construction workers, while the other is four years old and thus too young to work or study.
