Mut K., 29, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kompong Tom Province.
To earn a living, Mut K. sells different types of Khmer cake in her house. Besides this business, Mut K. and her husband are rice traders. They buy rice in bulk at a reasonable price to mill, and they sell their finished rice to people for income.
Mut K. thinks that is time to look for extra revenue, which she proposes to do by buying a larger quantity of rice to sell to retailers in the market. But she complains that she doesn’t have a big vehicle to transport more rice. To achieve her goal, Mut K. has decided to seek a loan to purchase a trailer to connect to her motorbike so that she can use it to pick up more rice.
