Mrs. OeU. U. is a 55-year-old mother of three who lives in Tol Kandal Choerng village located in Kampong Cham province. She sells Khmer cakes along with one of her children to make a living. Two of her children are attending a local school. Her husband, Mr. Yen Srorn, is a contract worker who has been hired by the villagers to dig wells. Mr. Srorn is encountering problems because he does not have enough supplies to dig the well. Thus, Mrs. OeU. U. is asking for a loan to buy well supplies for her husband’s work. She and her husband hope to increase their income in order to provide a better life for their family.
