Sout S., who is married and living in Kampong Cham with her husband and children, has been selling rice since 2000 to earn a living, making upwards of $5 a day; her husband operates a motor-taxi and raises domestic animals to earn additional income.
Sout is requesting a loan to purchase rice for resale, confident that this will allow her to increase her income and raise her family’s standard of living.
