Mr. Lun C. is 69 years old and lives in Bang Village in Kandal Province. He and his wife, Mrs. Sok Chiv, are farmers. They have a child who is employed in a garment factory. Since their child’s work place is far from their home, Mr. Lun C. spends a lot of money on his child's commute. That is why Mr. Lun C. decided to ask for a loan which he will combine with his saving to buy a new motorbike for his child to use to commute to and from work. The motorbike will mean a big reduction in his family's expenses.
