Huy S. is 41 years old and lives with her husband and two of her children in the Prey Veng province. She sells groceries and works as a local doctor in the village and is able to make about $3 of profit every day. Her husband is a local teacher and he earns $2 per day. Since this family spends a lot on transportation costs, Huy S. would like to take out a loan of $1200 to purchase a motorbike.
