Chourn, aged 27, is married with two lovely young kids. She happily lives in the Reussey Keo district with her family. She is a good housewife and also an industrious farmer who owns a few plots of farmland for growing rice. Her husband is a construction worker who earns $5.00 on average per day.
Due to the lack of a vehicle for commuting, Chourn’s husband has encountered difficulties and has to spend money for his daily transportation costs. In this regard, Chourn would like to help her husband and to cut down on unwanted expenses, so she is asking for a loan of $300 to add to her savings to purchase a used motorcycle for her husband to travel to his work, as well as for home use. Chourn aims to send her children to college after they finish high school.
