San, who is 30 years old, resides in the province of Siem Reap, an area full of ancient temples. She sells food and drinks and earns $9 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who earns $5 per day. This couple does not have any children yet. Every month, San has to spend $66 on food and $10 on other expenses.
San would like to request a loan of $1200 to buy a motorbike for her husband to travel to work. She also wants to expand her business to buy more kinds of drinks and to make more kinds of food because now there are many guests visiting the ancient temples.
