Mr. Chamroeun H., age 22, is single and lives with his widower father in a small village off of National Road Number Two about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He has one brother and four sisters.

Chamroeun has been a lathe operator for 2 years. It’s a skill he learned from his father. He doesn’t have his own transportation and spends a lot of money for traveling cost, so he is asking for his first loan of $1,000 in order to purchase a motorbike for commuting to work.
