Phan (in the photo) is a widow. She lives with her daughter and three grandchildren in a village about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City, across the Mekong River. Her daughter used to be a weaver, but she quit the weaving business and is now a cleaner for a company.

Phan is a weaver, and she supplements her income with a rice-farming business when farming season comes. All of Phan’s grandchildren are in school. One has finished his baccalaureate and wants to continue his bachelor's degree at IT University. Hence, Phan has decided to apply for a loan to pay his school fees.
