Ny works as a security guard for a private company in Phnom Penh to earn a living for his family. He has been in this occupation since 2009. Ny is now 23 years old and married to a woman who is involved in the garment industry. This couple does not have any children yet but they plan to have one when they have a consistent income in the near future.
In addition to his main career, Ny would like to provide transportation service to the public. However, he doesn’t have sufficient capital to purchase a motorcycle. For this reason, Ny is asking for a loan in the amount of $800 to purchase a motorcycle for his transportation business. Ny hopes to achieve good profits for the overall welfare of his family with the help of this loan.
