Samnang (pictured here) is a mason, and lives in a village about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, across the Mekong River. He has been married since 1990 and has five children- four sons and one daughter. One is a security guard, another one is a construction worker, two are in school, and the other one is still young.

Samnang has requested a Kiva loan to purchase a motorcycle for commuting once already. He wants to buy one more motorbike for his son who is a security guard to drive work, so he has decided to ask for another loan of $700.
