Chap V. sells fruit in Kampong Cham province. Her business has been around for about three years and she makes US$ 8 every day. Selling fruit has been a difficult business, as there is high inflation and weather conditions sometimes are not conducive to a good growing season.

Chap V.'s husband works in construction in Phnom Penh and makes US$ 7 per day as well. This couple together has four young children, one of whom is a student. She is asking for a loan of US$ 700 to purchase a motorbike to transport the fruit to market; sometimes her husband can use this motorbike to operate a motor-taxi. She sees this investment as an opportunity that may increase her daily income. (She pictured with her family members.)
