Sichan's story

Sichan, aged 36, is a motorcycle taxi driver with income of $7 per day. He lives with his parents and is not yet married. He is in charge of supporting his family because his brothers and sisters did not stay with his parents; they married and stay with their own families. He responds by paying all expenses of approximately $85 per month. He would like to request a loan of $400 to buy a new motorbike for his taxi service; his current motorbike is very old and needs a lot of repairs.
