Kimsuo is 51 years old, a widow and the mother of one son and two daughters. One of her daughters is married and the other one works for a hotel in Phnom Penh. Her son is employed full time. Kimsuo lives with her parents in a village about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She earns a living by growing small trees. She is applying for her first loan, for $700, so that she can add it to some savings she has set aside to buy a motorbike for her son to use to drive to work. Because her son does not now have his own transportation, he currently commutes to and from work with a neighbor.
