Mrs. Nhor T. is a 57-year-old widow with seven children (three sons and four daughters). Three of her children are married and live outside the family home; one daughter is a garment factory worker; another daughter is a silk weaver; yet another daughter assists in her mother's business of selling grocery items; and, her youngest son raises cows. The family lives in a small village across the Mekong River, approximately fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Mrs. Nhor has been selling grocery items for two years. She purchases her inventory from the Preak Anchan market in order to later resell such goods from in front of her house. Currently, she would like to expand her business, but lacks the money to do so. Therefore, Nhor is requesting a loan in the amount of $700 to expand her grocery business and to buy silk materials for her daughter's weaving business.
