Sareith is 35 years old. She is a married and resides with her two children in Takeo province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than three years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is a driver who earns about $6 per day. Due to transportation difficulties for her family, Sareith is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the money she saves on her transportation expenses to support her family. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store and help her children earn their bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
