Ay's story

Ay S. O. raises pigs near her house. She has been raising pigs for five years and earns about $3.20 per day. Her husband provides battery-charging services to people who use rechargeable car batteries in his village. People in rural villages in Cambodia use these rechargeable batteries as a modest means to power their homes. He makes about $2.80 per day from providing this service.

Because of an increase in customers, his machine cannot support the demand for battery-charging services. Mrs. O. is requesting a loan of $500 for husband to purchase a dynamo and increase the power output of his battery-charging machine. The picture is of Mrs. O.'s husband.
