Bunnary is 24 years old. She is married and blessed with one child in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than a year, earning approximately $4 per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is an arc welder who earns about $7 per day. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Bunnary is requesting a loan of $1400 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the money saved on her transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, she would like to send her child to a good school and build a new house as soon as possible.
