Sao Run is 35 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
Sao Run is a garment worker who earns about 4 US dollars (USD) per day. Her husband is a motor taxi driver. He earns about 7 USD each day. Because his current motorbike is old, Sao Run is requesting a loan of 1,000 USD to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to run his taxi service. This purchase will help her husband attract more customers and earn more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to build a new house and help her children earn bachelors degrees.
