Puthy is 28 years old. She is married and resides with her husband in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. They have been working in a garment factory for more than two years, earning approximately $8 daily. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Puthy is requesting a loan of $1300 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce transportation expense and get to work on time. In the future, she would like to build a new house as soon as possible.
