Chun is 32 years old and is married to Try. This couple has been blessed with a lovely young child who is currently attending the local school in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. Chun, being a responsible man and the head of his family, tries to work hard to provide his household with happiness and financial stability. He is employed as an administrative officer for a local company, earning approximately 10 USD per day while his wife operates a crop growing business on their existing farmland.
Since the family doesn’t own a vehicle for commuting and transporting things, they are experiencing difficulties in meeting their transportation needs. They have to contribute a portion of their income to pay for daily transportation costs to get to work or to anywhere else. For this reason, Chun is asking for a loan of 1,500 USD to purchase a motorcycle for personal and household use. He knows that this loan will help them to be more productive which will improve his ability to meet his family's needs.
