Ra, age 30, is a garment worker. Her husband, Hoeun Nou, age 30 is a construction worker. They have been married since 2008 and have one son who is in school. They are living in a village about twenty-five kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Ra does not have her own motorbike; she borrows the motorbike from her relative to get work every day. That is why she decided to request the loan in the amount of $1,200 to buy a motorcycle. Ra will not ask to borrow her relative's motorbike any more.
