Srey S., 48, is a widow who lives in Battambang province. She is a true entrepreneur who has a business selling various kinds of desserts and also grows rice to earn a living. She is able to make a combined US$ 5 a day. She is aided by two of her children who are employed as local bakers. Every year, farming produces just enough for the family members. She never has extra rice to sell to support the family.

Mrs. Srey S. is asking for a loan of US$ 700 to make two investments. First, she will put US$ 100 as re-investment into her dessert business; the rest of the money will be used to purchase fertilizer, rice seeds and to hire workers to harvest the rice crop.
