Makara is 22 years old. He is single and lives with his parents in Takeo Province, Cambodia. He has been working as an electrician for more than two years, earning approximately $3 per day. Due to the difficulty in his family’s transportation, Makara is requesting a loan of $1300 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable him to use the money saved on his transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, he would like to run a poultry farm and rebuild his present house to make it bigger and more convenient for his family.
