Long S., aged 26, is married and resides with one little child in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. Since 2003, she has been employed as a garment worker to earn a living and is able to make US$ 2 each day. Her husband, Vat Vann, 25, is a construction worker building houses. On average, he makes US$ 3 per day.

Working as a builder is hard and he earns little to support the family. Long has requested a loan of US$ 1100 to purchase a motorbike for her husband to operate a motor-taxi as currently construction work is unstable. A motor-taxi business will increase the family income. (Long is pictured with her husband.)
