Mrs. Sokha S., 48, and her husband, Mr. Roeun Khiev, 49, have been married for 20 years and have six children: two sons and four daughters. One of their children is married and lives outside the family home; two daughters are garment factory workers; one son is a driver, and two children attend school. The family lives in a small village off of National Road Number Two about twenty kilometers south of Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Sokha is a housewife. She looks after her house and takes care of the children. Roeun has been a driver for a construction company for fourteen years. Currently, their daughters go to work by motor taxi and the cost is high and they decided to buy a motorbike for their daughters to ride to work but they lack money to do so.

Therefore, Sokha is requesting her first loan of US$ 500 to buy a motorbike for her daughters to ride to work.
