Meur's story

Mrs. Meur P. is a widow who has been living in a rural area of Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. She can make around $3 a profit each day from selling fresh fish at the busy market. She has no a life partner as her husband died of illness for years. Mrs. Meur P. has three children: Two are married and live outside of the family home, while the other one is no longer in school and is employed at the garment factory. She has one son who earns money by driving motorcycle taxi (Tuk Tuk) in and around his community, earning an income on average of $5 per day to share responsibility with Mrs. Meur P. for the family’s expenses. He always picks up the fishes for her before he starts providing his taxi service. Unfortunately, an existing motorbike often has broken down during use. Because of that, Mrs. Meur P. has decided to seek a loan of $1,200 from Kiva, which she will use to change the broken motorcycle for her son.
