Sokhim and her family are living across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. She is in the business of selling rice around the village by her bicycle which she has done since 2000. Her husband is a fisherman and grows rice.

Sokhin is requesting her third loan for $500. She will use this money to purchase rice for reselling.
