Srey is 19 years old. She is married and lives with her husband in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She is a traditional dancer who makes an income of $5 daily. Her husband is employed in a restaurant. He earns about $3 per day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Srey requests a loan of $1000 to purchase a 'tuk tuk' (motorcycle taxi) for her husband to use to run a taxi service. By doing so, he would generate more income for the family. In the future, Srey would like to run a souvenir shop and build a new house as soon as possible.
