Tith is 52 years old, living in a thatched house located in Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. Local villagers in this area focus mainly on agricultural business including crop husbandry, especially rice, raising livestock, and the fishing business. As others, Tith is one of the farmers who prefers to grow rice to other crops. She has been doing this business for over 30 years. Tith is married and has four children. She gives thanks to her hard work and patience which allow her to raise and send all her children to school.
In order to better her living conditions and to satisfy transportation needs of her family, Tith would like to take out a loan of 800 USD to purchase a motorcycle for household use. This purchase will help Tith’s family easily and quickly gain access to the surrounding area and also reduce some expenses on public transportation services.
