Son O., 46 years old, lives in Kampong Cham Province, where she and her daughter share a business selling charcoal from village to village. Together they earn $5 per day. Her husband is a motor-taxi driver who adds an additional $4 per day to the family income. Son O. is now requesting a loan to enhance her charcoal business. She plans to buy a trailer to hook up to the back of a motorbike to transport the charcoal each day from village to village. This will save her and her daughter both time and money.

Her husband, Bun Thob, is pictured here, as she was unavailable to be photographed.
