Vanna, 29, is married and resides with her husband and one child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been working in a printing house in Phnom Penh city for over three years. Due to the difficulty in traveling to work, Vanna is requesting a loan of USD 800 to purchase a motorbike to commute to work. By doing so, she could save some money from her transportation expense to support her family. In the future, she would like to run a small printing house at home, build a new wooden house and support her child to higher studies.
