Sarm's story

Sarm S., age 45, is married and has a school-aged child. He lives with his wife and his child in Phnom Penh City. To make a living, he operates his own business as a taxi driver, and he also drives his car for a private company, earning approximately US $15 per day. This amount of income is the primary source of income of the family. His wife is midwife at her home, earning US $2 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, 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 his income. He is asking for a loan of US $500 to have his car repaired. By doing so, he hopes he will be able to attract more customers to consume his transportation services and generate more income to raise a good standard of living for his family.
