A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy a new motorbike to replace his old broken bike.


Siem's Group's story

This group of borrowers consists of five low-income people who live together in Chong Kneas Commune, in Siem Reap Province. Mr. Siem S., age 35, has been selected to be the leader of the group. Siem S. is a married father, blessed with two kids, both of whom are going to school. His wife stays at home to care for their children and cook food for the family. Beside her daily housework, she also sells a few groceries out of her home for income.

Siem S. currently owns a motorbike that he uses to pick up passers-by to earn a living. Recently he can’t attract as many customers as before because his motorbike often breaks down; he is therefore applying for a loan to add to his personal savings in order to buy a new one to replace the old broken one. The other four borrowers who are jointly taking out this loan:

Mr. H. is a tuk-tuk driver, who is asking for a loan to replace his existing motorbike that has broken down.

Mrs. S. is a single woman selling groceries, who requests a loan to buy more grocery inventory to sell.

Mrs. Y. is a chef for wedding parties and she seeks a loan to buy a motorbike to ride to work.

Mrs. S. will be using the loan to purchase additional grocery items to sell.

In this group: Siem, Hean, Rous, Chuon, Rous
