Panha is 26 years old. He is married and blessed with one child. He and his family live in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. He is a private electricity provider who earns about $7 per day. His wife is a homemaker. Because of the difficulty in the family’s transportation, Panha is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase a motorbike for commuting.
