A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase a Tuk Tuk taxi for her son-in-law to drive and to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her farm.


Korn's story

Korn and her husband are farmers. She has nine children - four sons and five daughters. Seven of her children are married and live separately, and the other two still live with her and her husband. The family lives in a village about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

One of Korn’s sons is a motor taxi driver. He hopes to change his business from motor taxi driver to Tuk Tuk driver, because it (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi) can carry more goods and people than a motor taxi. Hence, she has decided to apply for her first loan in the amount of $1,300 to purchase a Tuk Tuk for her son-in-law. She will also to use a part of the loan to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her farm.
