A loan of $500 helped to buy a motorcycle to transport her vegetables to market.


Yim's story

Yim Y. has a piece of farmland behind her house that she inherited from her grandmother and on which she cultivates a variety of vegetables. She is 53 and is married to Thoeun Than, 48, who assists her with her crops. Yim Y. was busy working on her farm when the photo taken, so her husband is pictured instead. The family has four children: three are married and the other one is single, working in construction.

Currently, Yim Y. faces difficulty with transporting her vegetables to sell at the market because she has no vehicle to use. So she is requesting a loan of $500 which she will add to her saving in order to buy a motorcycle.
