Than's story

This is the third time that Mrs. Than S. has asked for a loan to improve her living conditions. She owns a small grocery store in Preak Roka Village in Kandal Province. Her husband, Mr. Tun Vuthy, is a construction worker who earns a small income to support the family. Mrs. Than S.’s family has little money and they cannot afford to build a new house. Therefore, she has decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy timber to build a new house for her family. Mrs. Than S. has four children one of whom works in a garment factory while the other three are enrolled in school. Previously, Mrs. Than S. had obtained a loan to start her current business and she has now paid it back.
