A loan of $475 helped to buy a secondhand motorcycle for her son to begin running a taxi service.


Nguon's story

Nguon N., a 42-year-old resident of Kompong Chhnang Province, sells a few products such as soft drinks, food, and other plastic products. She typically makes around $2.5 of profit each day to ensure that her family has a comfortable living. She has been married for many years to Brak Khorn, 42, a man highly skilled at building stone and wooden houses. This couple has five children, two of whom are married while the other three are students and dependent on them.

Nguon wants her son to have an occupation as a motor-taxi driver; due to a lack of capital, she is requesting a loan from Kiva to buy a secondhand motorcycle for him to begin running a taxi service.
