Mrs. Sokheang V. is 35 years old and now lives in Ta Sean village in Kampong Cham Province. She and her husband, Mr. Seim V., are fruit sellers. Since this business is going well, they want to expand their business; to this end, Mrs. Sokheang V. decided to ask for a loan to buy a greater variety of fruit in their business. She hopes thereby to expand her customer base and thus increase her income and improve the life of her and her family. She has six children: one is a construction worker; one helps with the business; three are enrolled in the local school, and the youngest one is too young to work or study.
