Somaly is a widow mother with one son and two daughters. She lives in a village along National Road Number Five about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Somaly transferred her grocery store to her daughter because she has full-time employment. Previously, she requested a loan to buy a motorcycle and her daughter uses that motorbike for commuting and to carry grocery items from market to home.

Hence Somaly decided to apply for another loan of $1,200 to buy one more motorbike to drive to work.
