Ven N., 51, is married and lives in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Since 2003, she has worked collecting rice from house to house for sale. On average, she is able to make around US$4 each day. She says that currently it is difficult to purchase rice because most of the farmers have had a poor harvest. Her husband, Ong Oun, 54, is a rice farmer and normally he makes US$3 each day.

Ven N. would like to take out a loan of US$1,000 to increase her rice stock and to raise pigs for additional profit. In the future, she plans to purchase a mill with which to provide a grinding service as well.
