A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase a secondhand motorcycle for her daughter to ride to work.


Sao's story

Sao S. is a 50-year-old widow and local villager living in Phnom Penh City. She owns a piece of farmland that she inherited many years ago from her grandparents. She uses this land to grow vegetable crops for both dry and rainy seasons and she always gets good results because she has had experience in this sector since 2000. Sao S. typically generates an income of around $3 US to support the family.

Sao S. has two children; one is married and the other is single and works as a seamstress. Sao S.’s daughter doesn’t have her own vehicle to ride to her job location; instead, she hires a motor taxi. To reduce the cost of traveling expenses, Sao S. is applying for a loan for her daughter to purchase a secondhand motorcycle. She hopes to use the remainder of the loan to invest in planting vegetables.
