A loan of $600 helped to purchase a motorbike for her husband to commute to work.


Tha's story

Mrs. Tha T., age 28, grows cucumbers in her plot of farmland and sells them to a nearby market. Tha gets up early in the morning to pick cucumbers from her field, clean them, and send them to the market to sell, all of which generates around $3 per day. Her husband also contributes about $6 per day to the household by working as an electrician. The amount of income she and her husband make is just enough for her entire family, of which there are six members in total (her two little children, her mother and her brother).

Because inflation in Cambodia is out of control, everything is very expensive now, even the motor-taxi her husband uses to commute to work every day. (Gasoline has risen to $1.40 per liter from less than $1 per liter).

In order to save money on transportation each day, Mrs. Tha would like to request a loan from Kiva to purchase a motorbike for her husband to commute to work and save paying for a motor-taxi each day.
