Eart is 49 years old. She is a mother of two children and resides with her husband in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband runs the taxi service and earns about $8 per day. Her children are employed. They earn about $6 per day.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Eart is requesting a loan of $1,400 to purchase a motorbike to commute. This purchase would enable her to use the saved money on her transportation expenses to support her family and help her children go to work on time. In the future, she would like to build a new house to provide better living conditions for her family.
