A loan of $1,300 helped to buy a motorbike to use when commuting.


Teang's story

Teang is 51 years old, married and the mother of four children. She lives with her family in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia, where she and her husband have earned a living by fishing for more than 20 years. They earn about $12 per day, and one of her children works in a garment factory and earns about $3 a day. Because transportation is a big problem for this family, Teang is requesting a loan for $1,300 to buy a motorbike to use when commuting. This will allow her to save the money she and her family currently spend on transportation, and use it instead to improve the family's living conditions. In the future, she would like to help her children earn bachelor’s degrees so that they can all get good jobs.
