Ret is 34 years old. She is married and resides with five children in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than a year, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband is a rice farmer who makes an income of $1 daily. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Ret is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to rebuild her house and help her children earn higher education.
