Sim's story

Sim H., age 27, is married and has two young children who have not been enrolled in school yet. She lives with her husband in Siem Reap province. She has been engaged in a business as a grocery seller, typically earning US$ 5 per day. Her husband’s business is the primary source of income for her family. He is a tourist car driver for a private company, typically earning 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, H. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of the country's economic difficulties, H. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan of US $700 to purchase various kinds of groceries, a purchase that she sees as an opportunity to raise her standard of living.
