B. Nourn, 54, has been a motor-taxi driver providing transportation services in Phnom Penh City since 2000. His wife, 57, sells fried bananas (a very common snack for Cambodian people). He and his wife have 6 children: two of them are students and the rest are employed at a garment factory.

To make a better income, B. Nourn wants to take US$ 300 loan from KIVA to expand his wife's current business. Then, if she has more income and savings from the family’s expenses, she will be able to run a grocery business in her house. (His wife is presented in the picture)
