Chhit D., 37 years of age, lives in Kampong Cham Province, where she is a yam farmer earning $3 per day. This is a popular crop in Kampong Cham and she is fortunate to be able to earn that much. Her husband earns about $8 per day selling gasoline from a roadside stand. These stands usually consist of a manual pump attached to a barrel of gasoline with a meter to tell how much gas has been pumped. Together they support four children.

Chhit D. would now like to take out a loan to buy her husband a greater store of gasoline since the fuel has risen past $7 per gallon in Cambodia and it is becoming difficult for him to afford to buy it even by the barrel. Some of the loan will also go towards next year’s yam crop for her.
