Mrs. Lor S. is 30 years old and has been selling fresh vegetables in the local, busy market for years. She sells vegetables that she buys from wholesale suppliers and other farmers.
Lor S. is married to Choun Vun, 34, who uses his own motorbike to pick up passers-by for fees and also helps his wife to deliver vegetables to the market. Unfortunately, his motorcycle breaks down often and the current income he earns has been affected. To help solve this problem, Lor S. has requested a loan for the purpose of replacing the broken motor taxi.
Lor S. and her husband are shown in the photo. They currently live with their three school-aged kids who are dependent on their income.
