Mrs. Kol C., 57, is a single mother who has been living in Phnom Penh City. She is now a housewife. Mrs. Kol C. is a good and determined single mother who tries to feed her three children, even though she is recently divorced from her husband. She has two children who live separately and lives with her. The main income of her family comes from her son who works as dentist in a private company. Currently, his existing motorbike often breaks down during use. Because of that, Mrs. Kol C. has decided to seek a loan of $500 from Kiva, which she will use to change the broken motorcycle for her son. Mrs. Kol C. was not available at that day, so her son is pictured instead.
