Teat's story

Teat V., 52, works as farmer and lives with her husband in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. Since 1990, she has owned a plot of land on which she grows rice for a living and is able to make US$2 per day. Her husband, Rot Him, 56, pictured here, runs a business recharging batteries and normally makes US$8 per day. The has five children, of which two are employed and two are students.

Teat V. told a loan officer that she spends US$40 on food and US$15 on her children’s education every month. In her village, people depend heavily on batteries to power their lights, TV, radio and other appliances, so the battery-recharging business is a profitable one. Teat V. is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to purchase charging tools, a generator and a motorbike to help her husband in this business activity.
