Living in the province of Kompong Chhnang, Thin M., a 47 year-old married woman tries to earn a living by cultivating crops on her own farmland. She and her husband have spent most their life time farming. They grow rice crop following the rainy season and the dry season. The couple has received great success from their farming business year after year.
Thin M. has five single children, and one who is married. Two of them are working in different occupation to earn incomes. Her daughter works in the garment factory and has no vehicle to ride to her job location. When she needs to go to work, she has to rent a motor taxi. To resolve this problem, Thin M. is requesting a Kiva loan for her daughter to purchase a motorbike to ride to her place of work.
