Mrs. Touch is about 50 and has 5 children. They live in Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. She works as a local farmer along with her husband. With this type of business, Touch and her husband are able to generate enough for their livelihood. Nowadays, due to the lack of any vehicle in the family, Mrs. Touch’s family spends more each day on transportation fees. Therefore, Touch is looking for a loan in the amount of KHR1,500,000 to purchase a used motorcycle for the use of the whole family, as needed. Touch said this vehicle will provide her family a comfortable transportation to everywhere they wish, even though it is at a far distance. Her future goal is to enlarge her farmland and increase her rice production.
