The analysis should be comprehensive, looking at performance risks by borrowers, enforcement risks for lenders (among others), and even sovereign risks. The analysis will also include an analysis of any gender differences in risks, including disparities among borrowers, as well as creditor performance risks based on the gender balance and sexual harassment exposure of creditor institutions. The work will include desk analysis and interviews, including (among others), interviews with the leasing companies engaged in the above-mentioned DCA guarantee, a variety of Cambodian credit providers, and such other.
