Mrs. Mom P., 43, and her husband, Mr. Sarum Seng, 48, married in 1987 and have five sons. Four of them are in school and the other one stays at home to assist his parents in farming. Besides her children, she also has an elderly mother living with her. The family lives along National Road Number One about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Mom and her husband are farmers. They grow vegetables and flowers in their farmland in the village and sell them to the middleman in the village. They hope that their business will be able to support their children's further education.

Mom is requesting for her first loan of US$ 500 to purchase fertilizer and pesticides for growing vegetables and flowers.
