Nong is a 30-year-old married woman who is blessed with a child who is enrolled in a local school. She is a rice farmer in Kompong Cham Province. Her husband is a construction foreman who hires employees to provide his building services.
Recently, Nong's husband has been very busy in his business due to the many clients who need him to build their houses. However, he is lacking materials for these construction projects. That is why Nong has requested a loan to buy extra construction materials. She will use the remainder of the loan to add to their savings to buy a second motorcycle for traveling needs.
