A loan of $1,200 helped to buy equipment for a motor-repair shop for her son.

Cheam's story

Cheam P., 49, raises livestock and is a local rice cultivator too, with an income of US$2 per day. She lives in Takeo Province with her husband and her two children who are all employed as garment factory workers. Since 1998, her husband has always traveled far to do business in Phnom Penh as a motor-taxi driver with an income of US$7 per day.

P. wants to take a loan of US$1,200 to buy equipment for one of her sons to begin a business of repairing motors in the village. By operating this job for her son, she will have more labor force to help generate more income for the family’s expenses and use.

P. was not available for the photo, so her husband is pictured instead with his motorbike.
