A loan of $700 helped to buy a sewing machine and to repair the broken motor-taxi.


Keo's story

Mrs. S., 36 years old, is a humble villager living in the capital, Phnom Penh, in the middle of Cambodia. She is married and blessed with two young school-aged kids, while her husband is a motorbike taxi driver. S. works sewing clothes in the garment factory and gets a specific salary to meet the needs of her family. S. has been planning to get a sewing machine that she will use to sew the neighbor's clothes, but she doesn’t have money yet to buy one. This is why S. decided to pursue a loan of $700 through Kiva’s field partner, HKL, to meet the requirements above. Unfortunately, the motor-taxi is often broken down, so S. will use some part of the loan to repair it.
