Sours, 26, is the mother of a lovely young kid. She lives in Dongkor commune, a distant area of Phnom Penh. She is a garment-factory worker. Usually, she earns her payment monthly as salary. She is very industrious in sewing clothes at her workplace because she wants to save money for her child’s education in the future. As a result, she works overtime around 10 hours per day to get more bonus payment.
Presently, Sours is experiencing difficulty in transportation because there is not a suitable vehicle for use in her family. So she is now seeking a loan of $700 to purchase a secondhand motorcycle, which she will use for commuting to her workplace without paying for taxi service any longer. In her view, this loan is very useful for her family. She hopes that her living conditions will improve through using the loan given by Kiva.
