Mrs. Nary S., 25, is a single mom with one son. She has eight brothers and sisters. Currently she lives with her parents in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Mrs. Nary has been a hairdresser for one year, a skill she learned from a beauty salon school in Phnom Penh city. After finishing her skills training, she rented one shop near a market in Phnom Penh to operate her business. Her business is running so well because many customers come to her shop. For almost one year, Nary has saved some money to buy her own shop but still lacks part of the amount. Therefore, Nary is requesting a loan of $1200 to add to her own money to buy a beauty salon shop.
