A loan of $1,000 helped motorbike purchase.


Sok's story

Sok S., age 52, is married and has three children. She lives with her husband and her children in Phnom Penh City. To make a living, her husband works as a construction builder, earning approximately US $5 per day. This amount of income is the primary source of income of the family. Moreover, two of S.'s children are employed in a garment factory and at a construction site with an income of US $2 per day each to help the family.

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, 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. She is asking for a loan of US $1000 to purchase a motorbike for her husband to commute to work not only in the town but also the other places in the province. By doing so, she believes that she will be able to raise a good standard of living for her family.
