A lot of Cambodian people earn a living by driving a motorcycle taxi. One of those citizens, Mr. Poa P., is a motorcycle taxi driver and is able to earn a salary of $5 a day. He uses this income to support all his family expenses such as meals, his child’s clothing, medical bills, and his child's school fees. In order to help him, his wife works sewing clothes in industry and earns a specific salary.
Recently Poa P. is hardly finding passengers because his motorcycle taxi is too old and not attractive. To solve this problem, he decided to pursue a loan to be used to replace his old motorcycle taxi. From this he is hopeful that he will able to increase his number of customers and his income.
