A loan of $650 helped a member to buy a decent motorbike for her children.

Ten's Group's story

Ten, a villager from Kampong Cham province, is 46 years old and married. She is blessed with seven children, four of whom are still in school, while the remaining three are workers at a rubber plantation, owned by a private company in the local area.

To strive for a living, Ten also works as a latex tapper and her husband works as construction worker. She is able to generate about KHR 19,000 per day from the occupation that she has had for ages.

Ten, a third-cycle client, joins the same group with another borrower who is a second-time borrower with VisionFund Cambodia (Kiva’s partner) to apply for a new loan. Ten has been successful in repaying her past loan, which enabled her to provide, three times a day, decent meals for her children.

For this cycle, Ten is seeking KHR 1,400,000 and her joint member is applying for KHR 1,200,000. As the leader, Ten will spend her portion to buy a decent motorbike for her children to commute back and forth to the workplace. She hopes that her children can reduce the transportation cost that they used to have and can use that money to support the family, instead.
