Mrs. Phon L. is a villager in Roka Village in Kandal Province. She and her husband, Mr. Son Soeun, are farmers who cultivate twice a year. They have three children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory and one who is a housewife who can make a small salary. Since the two children's work place is far from house and they need to spend a lot of money on transportation, Mrs. Phon L. asks for a loan to buy a motorbike for her two children. She hopes this can reduce her family expanses.
