Neak S., age 41, sells both used and new clothes in and around the city of Phnom Penh. From that she is able to earn $4 a day to support her family. She doesn’t have a life partner as her husband divorced her when her two children were very small. Now her children are grown and can support the family by working in factory as a worker. Recently, Neak S. sold nearly all her inventory to her buyers and she wants to replenish her stock but she lacks capital. She is therefore asking for a loan in order to buy more clothes to resell.
