A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a motorcycle for commuting.


Sreytoch's story

Mrs. Sreytoch S. (in the picture) is 46 years old and her husband, Mr. Vichet Touch, is 42 years old. They have been married since 1991 and have two sons who are mechanics. They live in a small village outside of Phnom Penh City.

Sreytoch has been a garment factory worker for ten years, while her husband has been a mechanic for two years. She does not have her own transportation so she spends a lot of money for traveling costs. It’s difficult for her to manage their income to support her family.

That’s why she is requesting her first loan in the amount of US$ 1,000 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. She will be able to cut down on some expenses by not spending so much on traveling costs any more.
