A loan of $1,000 helped to replace her son's broken motorcycle.


Chao's story

Chao T. is a 47-year-old homemaker who lives in Reussey Keo commune, Phnom Penh City. She has spent most of her lifetime caring for her children, cooking delicious meals, managing cash flow and performing other duties in and around her house. Her husband is a construction supervisor who usually earns an average profit of $10 US, providing the whole family with a comfortable life.

Chao T. has four single children, one of whom works as a motor taxi (tuk tuk) driver. Unfortunately, his existing motorbike often breaks down while providing service. Therefore, Chao T. has decided to seek a loan of $1000 US from Kiva, which she will use to replace her son's broken motorcycle.
