A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorbike for his business.


Eng's story

Living in a rural area located in the Prey Chhor district, Eng is a 58-year-old widower with eight children, four of whom are dependent and who are still in school and selling grocery items.

He earns a living through planting cassava as a primary business and sometimes he works as a motor taxi driver.

Eng is a second-cycle client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, and he successfully paid back the past loan, which has helped him keep his children in school and build on some savings. Now he is able to earn around 25,000 KHR per day.

Now requesting another loan, he will use it to buy a motorbike for his business. He hopes this loan will enable him to have a new motorbike and he also hopes to make more income so as to make a better living and keep his children in school.
