Mr. Soeun S., 60, and his wife, Mrs. Loeung Nget, 58, live in a small village off of National Road Two about eighteen kilometers south of Phnom Penh. They were married in 1980 and have nine children: four sons and five daughters. Three of their children are married and live outside the family home. Four children are garment factory workers, and the other two children study in a local school.

Soeun has been a motorbike repairer for fifteen years. He runs his business from his shop in the village, while his wife raises pigs at home. Everyday many customers come to his shop, and he needs to buy more spare parts to serve them, but lacks the money. Therefore, Soeun is requesting a loan of US$500 to purchase motorbike spare parts for his business and to buy piglets for his wife to raise at home.
