A loan of $675 helped a member to buy a decent motorbike for her husband.


Som's Group's story

Som, 51, is a married mother of five children. She deals with the daily cost of living via working at a local garment factory, while her husband works at construction to supplement the family’s income.

This is the first microloan for Som with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She formed a group of three to apply for a loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy a decent motorbike for her husband as the transportation for commuting back and forth to the workplace.

She hopes that her husband can minimize the transportation cost that he used to cover and use the money to help the family instead.
