A loan of $600 helped to purchase a motorbike in order to easily transport her products to the customers.

Sourn's story

Sourn S., age 56, is a widow without any children. She lives with her elderly parents and a sister in Takeo Province. To make a living, she has been engaged in a business of manufacturing Cambodia traditional cake since 1998, typically earning an income of US $1.6 per day.

The financial crisis has been difficult for business in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for much of the country. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of this, S. is seeking to increase her income and improve her business. She is asking for a loan of US $600 to purchase a motorbike, a purchase that she sees as a great opportunity to transport her products to her customers at the nearby local markets. By doing so, she will be able to generate additional income and help to raise a better standard of living for her family.
