Mao is 43 years old, married, and has three children. They reside in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in the agricultural business for over 10 years, has extensive experience, and is successful in her career. She is involved in growing rice and fattening up pigs and poultry to sell for a profit to support the family. Her husband is a construction worker.
Two of Mao's children are employed at the garment factory. Since the factory is far away for home, Mao is requesting a loan for $1,200 to purchase a motorbike for her children for commute to work. In the future, she would like to expand her agricultural business and support her children until they get their bachelor's degree. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it much stronger to provide a better living condition for the family.
