Nat, 46 years-old, is married, and resides with her husband and four children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She is a fruit vendor. Her husband is a motor taxi driver. Three of her children are employed as hotel staff. Due to the difficulty of transporting her fruit to sell, Nat is asking for a loan of USD 1,000 in order to purchase a motorbike to carry fruit to resell. By doing so, she can transport her fruit to resell faster and in bigger amounts. She hopes she could support her youngest child to study until he graduates from high school.
