Mrs. Suong has been spending her life cultivating crops in the Kompong Speu Province. This is a skill she learned from her grandparent when she was young. She is now married and has three kids. Her husband works in the garment factory and has a fixed salary each month. Mrs. Suong’s husband faces difficulties with his traveling needs because he always pays a lot of money to a taxi driver when he wants to go to his work place and other places. Therefore, Mrs. Suong hopes to reduce the amount her husband spends on transportation by using her loan to purchase a motorbike.
Note: Mrs. Suong and her husband are shown in the photo.
