A loan of $425 helped to purchase a motorbike for commuting to work.


Preap's story

Mrs. Preap Y., 44, is married with 3 children and works as a farmer. She grows rice, earning $3 a day. Her husband is in the army at Siem Reap province, Cambodia. Normally, he makes around $1.50 a day. One of their children is a construction worker, and the other is a security worker, who works at Phnom Penh city. They earn an average of about $1 each per day. Preap needs a loan to purchase a motorbike for her commute to work. Previously, Preap Y. rode a bicycle to her field, and that is difficult because her house and the farm land is far away. To make transportation easier and to save time, she decided to ask for a loan from Kiva to buy a motorbike. (She took a picture with her husband and the motorbike she wants to buy behind them.)
