Yav's story

S., 28, lives in Siem Reap province, Cambodia where she owns a plot of land in front of her house for growing crops. She currently grows both rice and vegetables. She is a good mother to three children, all three of whom are still young.

To help cover the family's food needs, her husband is employed as a firewood seller. He sells firewood that he buys from the people who cut it from the forest. Since firewood is their main source of income, S. is asking for a loan for her husband to use as capital to buy more firewood to store for sale.
