Vorn B., 35, is a village man living in Russey Keo City. To help meet the family's daily needs, Vorn B. works driving a horse and cart taxi. He owns a cart and he uses it to pick up passersby and merchandise in and around his community. Vorn B. has a life partner with his wife (pictured) a seller. Her products include plastic products and fast food, and she earns an income of approximately $3 per day. They have two children who are studying in school. Vorn B. has been facing difficulties transporting his customers because his horse cart is slow and that affects how he can satisfy the needs of his customers. Because of this problem, Vorn B. decided to request a loan to purchase a motorcycle to which he will attach his existing cart. He will use this to transport his customer more quickly.
