Yous C. is 45 years old living with her husband and 3 children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She makes her living by selling fruits near the factory and can usually make around $3 a day. C.'s husband works as a moto-taxi driver and makes about $5 per day. One of the couple's daughters is a garment worker and contributes all her salary to the household. C. hopes to use the loan to purchase a moto-cycle for her husband to run his business and to generate additional income. In the future, the couple expect to purchase a stand at the local market to sell a variety of fruits and hope to sponsor their children's studies until they get a job themselves.
