Laihour is 23 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. To earn a living, her husband works as a soldier who earns about $3 per day.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Laihour is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce the family’s transportation expenses and help her husband easily go to work. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store at home and send her children to a good school.
