A loan of $1,000 helped to expand the shelter where she sells soup, Chinese noodles, coffee and porridge and buy soft drinks to sell.


Samnang's story

Mrs. Samnang S., age 52 years, is a widow with nine children: one son and eight daughters. Six of them are married and live outside the family home, two assist their mother in the business and another one attends school. They are living along national road number one, about thirty-five kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Samnang has just been selling soup, Chinese noodles, coffee and porridge in her village for six months. She hopes to expand the shelter where she operates the business, so Samnang is asking for her first of $1,000 to use for the purpose. She will also use a part of her loan to purchase soft drinks to sell.
