A loan of $800 helped purchasing a motorbike for use as a motor taxi.

Bouy's story

Bouy K., 39, is married and lives with her three young children in Battambong province. She is engaged in a business of producing a kind of traditional Cambodian cake. She also sells vegetables and fish, so she is able to generate an income of US$ 5 per day all in all. Her husband operates a motor-taxi and makes around US$ 3 every day.

They have recently noticed that their motorbike is not holding up well, and they need to purchase a new one to maintain their income. So, K. approached CREDIT to request a loan of US$ 800 to replace their old motorbike. They see this as way to increase their daily income through saving funds that are not used on repairs.
