Sem's story

Sem C., age 28, is married and has three school-aged children. She lives with her husband in Takeo Province. To make a living, she has to travel far to a market in the outskirts of Phnom Penh City to sell vegetables, typically earning a gross income of US $42 per day. Her husband also plays a major role in the family to generate a better source of income for his family. He is engaged in a business as a motor-taxi driver, providing his services to people in the city. 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, C. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of the country's economic difficulties, C. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan of US $500 to purchase a motorbike, a purchase that she sees as a great opportunity to transport her vegetables to sell and generate a better income to raise the standard of living of her family.
