Bich S., 27, is a married mother of a young child living in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. She earns about $1 U.S. dollar every day working in the fields as a farmer, while her husband, Chea Sary, operates a taxi service. He can typically bring in about US$5 a day.

Bich and Chea depend largely on his salary. Unfortunately, his taxi cab is broken, and they lack the funds to repair it. That's why Bich has applied for a loan of US$1,000 to repair her husband's car and help support her family. She looks forward to the return of a steady source of income and is optimistic about their investment.
