Kunthea (in the photo) is a weaver, and lives on an island of the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Her husband is a musician. He wants to supplement with a new business, driving a moto kangbei. In the past, these were commonly known as "tuk tuks" (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi), but they are now officially called "moto kangbei" by government authorities.

With the new business, Kunthea’s husband will earn extra income to better support his standard of living. Hence, Kunthea decided to apply for a loan to buy a kangbei for her husband.
