Takeo, Cambodia / Motorcycle Transport

A loan of $800 helped to purchase a motorcycle for his transportation business and 5 bags of feed for his wife's pig farm.


Mek's story

A responsible father, Mek, 34, always seeks to provide a better living standard for his family. At the same time, Mek dedicates himself to two businesses: one in farming and one in transportation. In the rainy season, Mek spends most of his time working together with his wife in the rice fields in order to maintain healthy crops. Aside from that, he provides transportation services to local people around his community. Like her husband, Mek's wife operates a second business to augment the rice growing; she runs a small pig farm. Together, they have given birth to three children who are all currently attending school.

To keep developing their family-owned businesses, Mek would like to borrow $800 USD. He will use part of it to purchase a motorcycle to sustain his transportation business, and use another portion to purchase 5 bags of feed for fattening their pigs. This precious loan will allow Mek, his wife, and their children to greatly develop their businesses and, therefore, their living conditions.
