A loan of $1,200 helped to use towards repairing her old house.


Phai's story

Mrs. Phai Y., age 51, makes a living by selling vegetables. She became a vegetable trader in 2000 and sells the vegetables both retail and wholesale. She goes to buy them in bulk at a reasonable price from the rural farmers. She currently earns an average of US$4 a day, and has been running her business for several years. Her husband is 51 years old and is a construction employee who works around the community.

Phai Y. is the mother of four teenage kids, who are no longer in school. All of her children are working at various occupations, and they each contribute some of their incomes to help the family meet its daily expenses.

Phai Y. faces a big obstacle: her house is cracking since the heavy rainy season started, and the family’s living conditions are often bad. She hopes to resolve this problem by asking for a loan to use towards repairing her old house.
