Mrs. Chantha Y. sells dessert at her house in the village; her husband, Mr. Sros Soeung, is a farmer. They have been married since 1993 and have four children: two sons and two daughters. The family lives in a Phnom Penh suburb.

Chantha has applied for a Kiva loan twice already (see here and here). Her second loan was used to purchase a motorbike for commuting. She now is asking for $1,000 as her third loan to buy another motorbike for her son to launch a motor taxi business.

Chantha will also use a part of her loan to connect her house to a private electricity utility service.
