Mrs. Kuy who was born in 1980 is married to Mr. Koem Na. She is a chicken seller at the local market where she is able to earn some income to support her family. Now she has a problem because her old motorcycle is not suitable for transportation of chickens to the market. Mrs. Kuy is seeking a loan to add to her savings to buy a new motorcycle.
Her husband is a basket maker and a farmer who owns a small piece of land where he grows rice. They sell part of the rice yield and use the rest of the rice to support their family. This couple supports four children, two of whom are attending local public school; the others are too small to work or study.
