Chantheng (in the photo), age 21, is single. She is a tailor. She lives with her sister and widowed mother about 25 kilometers away from Phnom Penh.

Chantha’s sister is also a tailor. She wants to supplement a new business selling groceries at home, but she does not have capital, so Chantha decided to apply for a loan in order to help her sister with capital. Money from the loan will be used toward building a grocery shop and buy grocery items.
