Lim resides in Siem Reap Province. He makes a living driving a motorcycle taxi, picking up his passengers in and around his community. He earns an income of about $3.75 a day and has been running his service for six years. He has two children, both of whom are teenagers and attend school. His wife used to sell some goods in front of her house but now she stays at home doing household work.
Lim is looking for a loan of $1,100 for his wife to purchase a new motorcycle to replace the old one which is very often broken down. He is concerned that she wouldn't pay for repair costs after receiving a loan from Kiva.

Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand the outreach of HKL’s financial services to a greater number of clients in rural areas of Cambodia.
