Mrs. Sreng P. is a widow who has two children. She lives in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia.
To improve her living conditions, Sreng P. sells local fresh vegetables and chicken at the Phsar Kok market. She typically makes about $3 of profit each day. She also breeds pigs for additional income.
Currently, her two children are employed as workers so they can generate more income for their household.
Sreng P. has operated her business for over 13 years, ever since her husband divorced her. At the time, life was such a struggle for her that she had to work very hard to feed her two little children. Now her family and her business are getting from day to day and she has a lot more customers than she had before.
She is asking for a loan to purchase more pigs to breed and to buy a motorbike to use for her business transportation.
