Mrs. Van P. currently cultivates various crops to earn a living. She is 52 years old and a resident of Battambang province, located about 280 km from the capital, Phnom Penh. She is a single mother, with seven children who are all single. Van P. also relies on the income from her daughter who mends and sews clothes in the village. Van P. wishes to have more income to ensure that her family can meet their current expenses with more stability. To achieve her goal, Van P. would like to invest in a new business of buying and selling mature rice in bulk, but she is concerned that she doesn’t have enough money yet to begin the process. Therefore, Van P. is humbly requesting a loan in order to buy 2000 kg of rice to store for a while before selling it at a profit. Mrs. Van P. was not available when the photograph was taken, so her daughter is pictured instead.
