A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a decent motorbike to support her business.

Ath's story

A 56-year-old mother from Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Ath overcomes her family's hardships and supports her children through rice farming. She has six children, two of whom are living with her and still need her support, as they do not earn much income from their current jobs as garment factory workers.

She has been in the business of rice farming for 22 years. This is her sixth loan cycle with Kiva partner, VisionFund. She has successfully used her past loans, which she has completely paid back, in an effective way to relieve her family's burden and improve their livelihood.

Now, she is requesting a loan of 1,000 US dollars to buy a decent motorbike to support her business. She hopes to own a motorbike which will help her to travel to the marketplace to sell her cash-crop, saving her time which she can use to better care for her children and her business.
