Mrs. Sreymao S., 29, and her husband, Mr. Lanh Sam, 28, live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 2002 and have two children, one son and one daughter. The couple live with their parents.

Mrs. Sreymao has been a tailor since she was eighteen years old. She does her job at home. Mr. Lanh Sam has been a motor taxi driver in Phnom Penh for eight years. Now his motor is very old and needs to be changed for new one.

So, Mrs. Sreymao is requesting a loan in the amount of $1000 to purchase one sewing machine and buy one new motorcycle to replace the old one for her husband to keep being a motor taxi driver.
