Sean is 47 years old. She is widowed and resides with two children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been selling vegetables for more than ten years, earning approximately 8 USD daily. Her children are tailors who make an income of 11 USD per day. Due to her family’s transportation difficulties, Sean requests a loan of 1,000 USD to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce her family's transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to expand her children's tailoring shop and build a new house.
