Cambodia operates as a free market, so lots of couples co-operate and try to make an effort to find which job is suitable for them to earn an income for the family. With many choices of jobs, Hor has been running a business purchasing ducks and chickens. From this business, Hor earns about $5 USD each day and apart from this revenue, his wife runs a business as a grocery seller where she earns approximately $3 per day also. Every day, Hor must spend more money for taxi fares to buy ducks and chickens at province because it is far away from his house. Because of the long distance and no motorbike at his house, Hor and his wife have decided to request funds from HKL and Kiva in the aim to purchase a motorbike for coordinating his business. He hopes that this loan will help him achieve happiness and gain more profit.
