Keo S., 49, is married and lives with four of her children in Prey Veng province. She stays at home doing housework and cooking for her family members. Her husband, pictured here, is a motor-taxi driver and makes US$ 2 in profit a day. Mrs. Keo is asking for a loan to purchase a new motorbike for her husband as the old one is often fixed and uses a lot of gas while operating.
