Sophoeun (pictured here), age 35, is a fisherman. His wife, Sokhea, age 35, sells vegetables. She buys vegetable from fellow villagers and carries them by bicycle to sell in a Phnom Penh market. She wants a motorbike to make it easier for her to carry her vegetables; hence, Sophoeun is asking for his first loan of $600 to buy a motorbike for his wife.

The couple lives in a village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have three children: two sons and one daughter.
