Chamroeun, 33, is married and resides with her husband and five children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than five years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is employed in a mobile phone company. He earns about $8 per day. Her children are still in her care and are in school. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Chamroeun is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the saved money on her transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, she would like to run a tailoring shop and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
