Nguon S., 43 years old, is a humble villager living in Takhmao city, in the middle of Cambodia. She is married and blessed with five children. Her husband is a fisherman who fishes to feed his family and to sell as well.
To earn a living, Nguon S. sells many kinds of flowers, which she either grows herself or buys in bulk from her supplier. Her husband helps her when she needs to pick up the flowers. Unfortunately, their motorbike often has broken down during use. Because of that, Nguon S. has decided to seek a loan of $600 from Kiva, which she will use to replace the broken motorcycle.
