A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy a secondhand motorcycle.

Phon's Group's story

Mr. Phon P., 38, is a motorcycle taxi driver. He has been driving a taxi since 2004 and can earn approximately $2.33 per day. His wife, Mrs. Eoeun Met, 37, buys raw materials and makes Khmer traditional baskets to sell from her house. Phon has four children, all of whom go to school and also help with their mother's business. Phon faces difficulty with his old motorcycle, which is often broken, depriving him of customers and thus affecting his income. He needs a new motorcycle to improve his income, but he lacks the money to carry out this plan. Hence, he has requested a loan of $200 to purchase a secondhand motorcycle to replace the old one.

Phon was chosen as the leader of a five-member loan group. The other members are:

1.Mrs. Phai T., 52, who sells wooden cutting boards used for chopping meat. T. requested a loan of $300 to buy a secondhand motorcycle for transportation.

4.Mr. Man M., 27, a motorcycle taxi driver. Man needs a loan of $250 to replace his motorcycle.

These five people all live in Leangdaiy Commune, Siem Reap Province.
