Sreyneang, 34 years old, is a garment factory worker who earns $2.70 per day. Her husband is a chief construction worker and earns about $13 per day. They have three children, all of whom are in school studying. Every month, she has to spend $50 on food, $8 on electricity, and $40 on school fees.
She would like to request a loan of $300 to buy dirt to fill her land which is flooding. This loan will allow her family to avoid flooding. She plans to extend her husband's career by helping him to buy more construction equipment and materials so that he can provide better service to the customers than now. She hopes to send all of her children to study at least until they finish high school.
