Sarith is 27 years old. She is married and resides with her husband in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than five years, earning approximately $3 per day. Additionally, she is a rice farmer. Her husband is a construction foreman and earns about $5 per day. Due to her family's transportation expenses, Sarith is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her go to work on time and reduce her transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to run a poultry farm to earn more income to support her family and build a new house as soon as possible.
