Driving a motorbike taxi is part of 41-year-old Prom C.’s daily routine. He normally gets up in the late morning to pick up passengers and merchandise. He brings his daily income home to meet his hungry family’s needs in the evening. He currently lives with his wife and their two children in a small house in Siem Reap Province. In addition, his wife works selling fish in the market.
Prom C. has been using his motor for a long time. Recently, he is earning less money than before because his motor is not attractive. Therefore, he has decided to seek a Kiva loan of $1000 in order to buy a new motorbike to replace the existing one.
He and his wife are pictured.
