Mr. Hot H. is 44 years old and works as a small fisherman in Siem Reap Province. He earns about $4/day at this job, but 2 of his sons also work to supplement the family income. One son is a construction worker, and another works in a massage shop. Mr. Hot H. pays for his sons to get to work everyday, but this is too expensive to keep up. He will use this loan to buy a motorbike that his sons can use to get to and from work. He knows that this will be a much cheaper option in the longrun.
