Pak's story

Pak P., 28, runs a small construction business. He employs a few workers for his building operations and earns around US$10 per day. His wife, pictured in the photograph, is a farmer and sells crops in the market, earning around US$2 per day. The couple has two children, both of them very young, and the family lives in the Beong Chum Village, Siem Reap Province. Currently, P. needs a loan of US$1,000 to be able to expand his business. Specifically, he will use the borrowed money to purchase a cement-mixing machine. The loan will thus allow him to offer additional construction services and thereby increase his income.
