Mrs. Hem S. lives in Pour Dos Village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer who cultivates her fields twice a year. She is a 58-year-old widow with a child who is a motorbike taxi driver. In this business, her child faces a small problem because the motorbike is too old and her child must spend a lot of money on petroleum. Thus, Mrs. Hem S. decided to ask for a loan to buy a new motorbike to replace the old one. Mrs. Hem S. hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with this loan.
