Bun S. is a hard-working woman who earns a living by working in a garment factory. She has been working in that sector since 2006, and earns a regular salary every day. She has a life partner in her husband, who is a driver in a construction company as well as a motor taxi driver for extra profit in and around Phnom Penh City. He earns an average income of $3 per day. This couple is blessed with two children, both of whom are single and living with them.
Bun S. said that the core resource of her family revenue comes from her husband’s business. Unluckily, her husband’s motorbike was broken while providing his service, and he has paid a great deal of money many times for repairing it. In order to solve this problem, Bun S. is seeking a loan for her husband to purchase a new motorcycle to replace the broken one.
