Chheng Leang
Chheng Leang (in the photo), age 29, is a tailor. Her husband, Sophoun, age 34, is a motor taxi driver. He hopes to change his business from a motor taxi driver to a Tuk Tuk* driver, because it can carry more goods and people than a motor taxi. Hence, Chheng Leang decided to ask for a loan of $1,000 to buy a Tuk Tuk for her husband.

Chheng Leang and her husband live in the suburb of Phnom Penh City and they just have one young son.
