Thet (in the photo) sells dessert and fast food in the village. Her husband, Sophy, is a remoque taxi driver. In addition, he is also a chef.

Thet is in the process of building her house, but the house is not finished yet. Hence, she needs to ask for a loan to complete the work.

Thet and her husband live in a village across the Mekong River, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have three children - two sons and one daughter.

About 'remoque': In the past, we called these taxis 'tuk-tuks' (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi). But, now the government does not allow use of this name. That’s why we call the taxi 'remoque' instead of 'tuk-tuk'.

Additional Information


MAXIMA Mikroheranhvatho is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
