A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a motorcycle for home use.

Cheam's story

Cheam is 42-year-old mother who is engaged in a hog-raising business as her supplementary business in addition to rice farming. She raises pigs for slaughter in her village, Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She has two children, one of whom is already married and works as a construction foreman while the other child is still dependent and attending school. Despite her hardship, Cheam would like to attain a better quality of life and provide a good education to her youngest child.

Due to the lack of a vehicle in her household, Cheam and her spouse have encountered difficulties in their transportation needs and they have to pay for transportation when they wish to go anywhere. As a result, Cheam is applying for a loan in the amount of 1,000 USD to purchase a motorcycle for home use. She hopes to provide good living conditions for her family someday.
