A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a motor taxi to rent for extra income.

Kong's story

Chea Chanthea, age 26, has one child and lives with her husband in Siem Reap province, Cambodia. After her housework is done, she works selling dessert in a busy market. She earns $5 per day. (Chea is pictured.)

Her husband, Kong S., is a motor-taxi driver. He normally takes a guest from the hotel and goes around the temple in Siem Reap. He also gives a one-day tour for tourists for $15. On average, he earns $8 per day.

To earn more money, Chea’s husband is requesting a loan from Kiva to purchase another motor-taxi. He plans to rent this motor-taxi to earn extra income.
