Phorn's story

Mrs. Phorn S. lives in Ping Pong Village in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She is a middle(wo)man who buys bitter melons from villagers and resells them for a profit. Mrs. Phorn S.’s business has improved, so she wants to expand it. Thus, Mrs. Phorn S. is requesting a loan to buy more bitter melons to sell.

Her husband, Mr. Soy Sun, is a construction worker. Mrs. Phorn S. has six children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory, while three others attend school. The youngest one is too young to work or study. Previously, Mrs. Phorn S. obtained a loan from AMK to buy a cow for breeding. Last year, one of her children got malaria and she spent $125 to have her cured. Her husband is on the left of the photo.
