Nak's Group's story

Mrs. Nak R., 49, a widow, sells porridge and noodles with soup in the Slaket Market. She has been selling food since 2005, earning US$ 4 per day, while Mr. Sharey Mot, her son, is 21 years old and a motorcycle taxi driver. Nak lives with five children. One son left to work in Thailand and three of her daughters stay home to help with Nak's business. Because of lacking capital to upgrade her business, she would like to request a loan of US$ 300 to use as capital to expand her porridge and noodle soup selling business. Nak was chosen to be group leader by the five other members as follows:

Mrs. Srou P., 52, is a widowed fish seller. She needs a loan of US$ 300 to add more fish to sell.

Mrs. Noeun I., 59, is a widowed housewife wH. helps in her daughter's grocery. Noeun needs a loan of US$ 300 to buy grocery inventory.

Mrs. Sophea S., 42, sells fish. She needs a loan of US$ 300 to purchase fish from suppliers to stock and sell.

Mrs. Monika H., 43, is a teacher. She needs a loan of US$ 300 to buy a second-hand motorcycle instead of the old one her husband uses to drive a motorcycle taxi.

Mrs. Phan P., 58, wH. is also widowed, buys and sells chickens. She requests a loan of US$ 200 to buy more chickens to sell.

They all live in Slaket Commune, Siem Reap Province.
