Sam's story

Siem Reap is one of major tourist attractions in Cambodia. Most people support their families by farming and, but some must have additional business to support the family.

Sam A., age 41, is one of a hundred groceries vendors who set up shop in front their houses in Siem Reap. On average, she makes about $5 of profit per day. Her husband is a police officer and his salary is only $35 a month. They have seven children. Two are married and live away from home and three others are students and sometimes help their mother by selling groceries after school.

To meet her customer’s demand, she would like a loan to by more groceries to sell in her store. This will allow her to save for the future and to pay for her children to go to the university. She will use any remaining profit to repair her house.
