Thoung is 30 years old. She is married and blessed with one child. She and her family live in Takeo Province, Cambodia.

To earn a living, she has been involved in cultivating agricultural crops for more than seven years. By doing so, she earns approximately $2 per day. Her husband runs a motor taxi service, which allows him to earn approximately $4 per day.

Because her husband's current motorbike is old, Thoung is requesting a loan in the amount of $700 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband so that he can better run his service. Specifically, this purchase would help him attract more customers and earn more income to support their family. In the future, she would like to build a new house and to send her child to a good school.
