A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a tuk tuk (a motorcycle-based taxi) for his transportation service.

Phoeurn's story

Phoeurn is 33 years old. He has been a motorcycle broker for many years. In the market place, he seeks clients to buy and sell second-hand motorcycles. His income is based on how he can find the clients to buy motorcycles he bought. Some days he can earn a good income but some days not. For broken motorcycles he bought, he must repair them first before selling to other people, so that he can sell them in a profitable price. For his current business, he earns an income around $3.50 each day to meet daily expenses.

In order to generate more profits, he intends to purchase a new tuk tuk (a motorcycle-based taxi) in order to provide transportation to sewing workers in and around his community. Because he does not have enough money, Phoeurn has decided to ask for a loan from Kiva through HKL to add to his personal savings so that he can buy a new tuk tuk for his transportation service.

Phoeurn is married to Yann, a 34-year-old woman who is a garment worker. The couple is blessed with two children who are enrolled in school.
