Samphors is 35 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than two years, earning approximately $3 daily. Her husband is a motorcycle taxi driver who makes an income of $7 each day. Because the present motorbike is old, Samphors requests a loan of $1000 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to run his taxi service. In addition, a part of this money is used to pay for her house construction. In the future, she would like to run an additional business and help her children earn bachelor’s degree.
