Lun is 30 years old. She is married, has one child, and resides in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She is involved in breeding pigs. She makes an income of $3 daily. Her husband runs a public transportation service. He earns about $8 per day.
Because the present motorbike is old, Lun is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a new motorbike, to replace the old one. This purchase will help her husband continue to earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her piggery and send her child to school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house, as soon as possible.
