A loan of $300 helped to purchase a motorbike for commuting to work.


Kit's story

Kit S., age 28, is married and has three school-age children. She lives with her husband in Siem Reap province. She owns a business producing Cambodian traditional cakes, typically earning $1 per day. Her husband’s business is the primary source of income for her family. He is a construction worker, typically earning $4 per day.

The financial crisis has been difficult for businesses in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for many, S. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of the country's economic difficulties, S. is seeking to increase her income and improve her husband’s business. She is asking for a loan of $300 to purchase a motorbike, a purchase with which she sees an opportunity to raise her standard of living. By doing so, her husband will be able to commute to work easier and faster to his long distance construction site.
