Phou's story

Phou R., 70, is a widow with two children. She resides in Phnom Penh City, Cambodia, with her children. To make a living, she is engaged in a business selling various kinds of vegetables, earning an income of approximately US$2 per day. The family also is assisted by one of her children, who is currently employed at a restaurant as a chef. She is able to earn an income of US$5 per day to help cover her mother’s household expenses. The members of R.’s family are seeking to improve their standard of living and to expand their current business. Therefore, R. is asking for a loan of US$1,200 to purchase various kinds of fruit to start another business besides selling vegetables. By doing so, R. hopes that her business will be successful so that she is able to generate extra income for future household use.
