Mr. Socheat T., 28 and his wife, Mrs. Sreymom Boeun, 19, married in 2006 and just have one young daughter. The family lives along National Road Number Six about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Socheat has been a blacksmith for seven years and started his own business five months ago. Before he started his own shop, he was employed in a shop near his village. His wife stays at home to take care of their daughter. Socheat lacks money to expand his business so he is requesting his first loan of US$ 1000 to purchase blacksmith's materials for his new shop.
