Nan is 42 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been making and selling creel for more than four years, earning approximately $3 daily. Her husband is a construction worker who earns $5 each day. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Nan requests a loan of $1200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store and help her children attain higher education. She also hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
