Chenda's story

Chenda, age 48, is a widow with one son and two daughters. One is a garment worker and the others are in school. She lives in a village approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Chenda is a rice farmer. In addition, she makes "prahoc" (a popular Cambodian condiment made of fermented fish paste and salt) for sale. She is asking for a loan of $1,000 to buy fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her rice farm. She will also use a part of the loan to buy small fish and other ingredients to make "prahoc".
