Mr. Puthea M., aged 40, and his wife, Mrs. Chorn Port, aged 36, live in a small village along National Road Number Three, about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1991 and have three daughters. Their eldest daughter is a garment factory worker. Puthea was not available for the photo, so his wife is pictured instead.

Puthea has been working in a garment factory for three months. His wife stays at home and does house work. He does not have his own transportation and spends a lot of money on traveling costs very often.

To deal with this, Puthea is applying for his first loan of $250 in order to purchase a motorbike for commuting.
