Chanthet, age 26 and unmarried, earns an income by selling rice and other food items in front of a garment factory. His customers are the garment workers who are employed there.

Chanthet lives with his widowed mother in a suburb of Phnom Penh.

He is requesting a loan in the amount of $1,500 in order to purchase his own motorcycle so that he can transport his goods to the selling place. He needs this because he has been using a relative's motorcycle and it is not always available. He will use his loan funds to purchase a motorbike and a trailer that will connect at the back, which will allow him to more efficiently transport rice and food items to the factory.
