Mr. Sela S., age 18, is single. He lives with his widowed mother, a garment factory worker, in a small village about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Sela has been a construction worker for seven months. He doesn’t have his own transportation, so he spends a lot of money on traveling costs. Because of this, he is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorcycle so he can commute to work.
