Mr. San S. is a villager who lives in Phnom Penh, where the people are able to run their businesses well. San S. is married and has two kids, who are no longer in school, but are employed in the garment factories. To pursue a daily income, San S. owns a kiosk inside the market where he sells chickens to citizens who come to buy something for their cooking. He and his wife always travel to the rural areas in order to buy chickens, then slaughter them at their house. The couple has been engaged in this job since early 2005. Presently, San S. has a motorcycle that is not able to carry all of his items. He hopes to have a trailer that he will use to pick up more chickens. This is why San S. decided to borrow a loan for the purpose of buying a trailer.
