Mrs. Him S. is 38 years old and lives in Prey Veng Province with her husband and their 7 children. She currently works selling sugar cane juice at the market, and can earn $2/day. Her husband is an electrician and earns $2.5/day. The family would like to use this loan to build a store for the electrical business, because the husband and three of their children are all electricians. They hope this loan will help to start their business where the entire family can work together.
