The family lives a small village along National Road Number Two about seventeen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Soun and her husband have been selling small trees for ten years. Their son who is a garment factory does not have his own motorcycle to get work. So Soun is asking for a loan of $600 to purchase a motorcycle for her son.
