Mrs. Sareth N. lives in Ang Korkir Village in Takeo Province. She is 39 years old and the mother of three children. Two of her children attend the local school while the youngest one, at age two, is too young to work or study. Her husband, Mr. Long Poy, is a motorbike taxi driver who earns $3 a day. This income is too small to support their family, so Mrs. Sareth N. sells vegetables in the local market. Her business is going well, and she would like to expand it. As such, she’s requesting a loan to increase her inventory by buying different kinds of vegetables to sell in order to meet her customers’ demands.
