Mrs. Sam-at Y., 33, and her husband, Hout Thol, 40, live in a small village along National Road Number 2 about 20 kilometers south of Phnom Penh. They have been married for more than eight years and have one son and three daughters, two attending school and one still too young to go to school. Mr. Hout Thol is a driver for an electrical shop in Phnom Penh.

One of Sam-at’s children works at a garment factory along with her. Since they don’t have transportation for commuting to work, Sam-at is asking for a loan of $700 to purchase a motorbike.
