Thoeun S. works in a grocery store, making around $7 US each day. She is 41 years old, married and lives with her child in Takeo province. Her husband works as a construction worker building houses. Her husband makes about $3 US each day; however, they must also support an old mother at home. Food prices have soared in the past year as inflation has gotten out of control in Cambodia. Unfavorable climate conditions have also been a factor in making the price of rice very high.

Thoeun S. is asking for a loan of $1200 US to stock grocery items to meet her customers' demands. She is confident that this will be a good business venture, and sees it as a tool to increase her income and raise her family’s standard of living.
