Sa is a resident living in Dongkor district, Phnom Penh. She is 60 years old and is in a common-law marriage with four children. She is a housewife who is responsible for the household and care for her children. Her husband works in the construction industry to provide income for this family and her three children who are currently employed provide another source of income. Sa’s children have experienced difficulties in their transportation needs because the work locations are far away from home.
She is now requesting a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a motorcycle to satisfy her children’s needs. This motorcycle can help reduce their traveling costs. She believes that the loan will partially contribute to developing her living conditions.
