Mei P., 60, has been involved in a business of producing door mats with a typical income of US $1.30 per day in Takeo Province since 2000. P. and her husband work very hard every day to ensure a comfortable standard of living for the family.

P. and her husband are blessed with three children; two of them are enrolled in a local high school, and another one is employed in a garment factory. Her husband operates a business on his own as a door mat seller who has to travel long distances in his province and other nearby places to sell his products. He usually earns around US $9 per day.

P. really wants to take a loan of US $1000 to purchase more door mats for husband to expand his inventory to sell to his customers. By doing this, she hopes that her husband will be able to generate a better income to cover her family's expenses as well as to save to cover her children’s future education.
