Panha, 25, resides in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Panha is an electrician for a hotel. Panha is requesting a loan of USD 300 to purchase a motorbike for commuting to work. By doing so, his family is able to generate more income and decrease expenses from public transportation. In the future, he would like to use any additional income to rent a stand at the market for his wife to sell groceries. This will be his first loan from KREDIT, a longstanding Kiva partner.
