A loan of $600 helped to add to his own money to buy a "Tuk Tuk".


Thea's story

Thea, age 33, is a motor taxi driver. His wife, Chamroeun, age 30, is a garment worker, and they have been married since 2005 and just have one young daughter. The family lives in a village approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Thea hopes to change his business from motor taxi driver to Tuk Tuk driver, because it can carry more goods and people than a motor taxi. Hence, Thea decided to apply for his first loan in the amount of $600 to add to his own money to buy a Tuk Tuk.
