A loan of $500 helped to purchase a motorbike for family needs.


Kheun's story

Mrs. Kheun Y. has had a job as a rice farmer in the village since 1980. She is age 42 and the mother of four single children, three of whom are students, while the other one is a fisherman. She is married to Mr. Chek, age 39, who sells fish that he catches in the local public lake.

The family faces difficulty with transportation because they always need to pay a lot for taxis. Because of the problem, Y. has decided to seek a $500 loan to purchase a motorbike so that she can use it for the family's transportation needs. She intends to use 30% of the loan for her farming operations. (Mrs. Y.'s husband is pictured).
