Teab's story

Teab S., age 46, is married and has 6 children. Two of her children have been enrolled in a local secondary school, and the rest are employed. She lives with her husband in Siem Reap province. She operates a grocery store, typically earning US $5 per day. Her husband makes a living by digging soil to refill his customers’ land with an income of US $8 per day. The financial crisis has been difficult for business in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for much of the country, S. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of the country's economic difficulties, S. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan to purchase soil and transport it to refill her husband's customers' land.
