Mrs. Lim A. lives in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. She is married with one school-aged kid. Her husband helps take care of their family by working as a company security guard.
Mrs. Lim A. always buys small pieces of clothing in bulk at the lowest price from garment factories and weaves it by her hand into furniture to sell. Her finished products are cradles and floor mats, which she then sells to her regular customers.
Mrs. Lim A. is concerned that she goes to sell her items by taxi or walks because she doesn’t have her own vehicle for traveling. Mrs. Lim A. has planned to buy a vehicle many times but she never had sufficient money to buy one. Therefore, Mrs. Lim A. would like to take a loan to purchase a secondhand motorcycle for her transportation.
