Sitha is 46 years old. She is widowed and resides with her mother and two children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fried noodles for more than a year, earning approximately $10 per day. Her children are employed. They make an income of $5 daily.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Sitha is requesting a loan of $1,400 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce the family’s transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to run a pub and build a bathroom.
