A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a motorcycle for her children to drive to school.

Sambat's story

Mrs. Sambat N. (pictured above), 37, and her husband, Mr. Soy Sok, are fishermen. They fish from the nearby lake and sell their catch in Prek Phnao market.

The couple has been married since 1987 and have four children--two sons and two daughters. One of them has full-time employment and the other three attend school. The family lives in a small village along National Road Number Five, approximately 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Because their children commute to school far away, they have to take motor remorque or motor taxi very often. A remorque is a motorcycle with a trailer on the back. Taking a remorque to school is expensive for the family.

Hence Sambat is asking for her first loan of US$ 1,000 to purchase a motorcycle for her children for commuting.
