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, N. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most.
In light of the country's economic difficulties, N. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan of US$ 1000 to purchase a motorbike and a trailer, a purchase that she sees as a great opportunity to collect coconuts from her village and other nearby places and sell them off at a fair but profitable price.
