Svay Y., 52, is a widow with two children and lives in Takeo province. To earn a living, she has been selling noodles at the local market. On average, she is able to make about US$ 3 each day. She is also supported by one daughter who is employed as garment factory worker.

Svay Y.’s daughter spends about US$ 0.50 every day on transportation and this makes her family face difficulties with daily transportation. Seeing this as a difficulty, Mrs. Svay Y. is asking for a loan of US$ 400 to purchase a motorbike for her daughter to commute to work. (Svay Y. is pictured with her daughter at her home.)
