Vanna, 39, is married. She resides with her mother, her husband and three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been working in a garment factory for over 10 years, earning approximately $6 per day.
Due to the difficulties of family transportation, Vanna is requesting a loan of $450 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to go to work on time and use the money saved on her transportation expenses to support her family. In the future, she would like to build a new wooden house and help her children get bachelor degrees.
