Lear, 29, is single and resides with her parents in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She is a signer in a restaurant. She earns about USD 7 per day. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Lear is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to purchase a motorbike to commute. This purchase would enable her to use the saved money on her transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, she would like to create her own music band to play in the wedding ceremony and other parties. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it bigger and more comfortable for her family’s living.
