A loan of $800 helped to purchase: a new motorbike to replace her husband’s old one; flowers on contract for re-sale.

Sophin's story

Mrs. Sophin L., 34, and her husband, Mr. Thea Soem, 33, who live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, married in 1997 and have two children: one son and one daughter. One of their children attends school and the other one is still too young.

Sophin has been selling flowers for six years, a skill she learned from her parents. She buys them from villagers in her village for re-sale at the market in Phnom Penh. Her husband has been driving a motor remorque taxi (a motor with a trailer at the back) for fifteen years. But, his motor remorque is broken very often and it upsets his business.

So, Sophin is requesting a loan of US$ 800 to purchase a new motorbike to replace the old one; she will use part of her loan to purchase flowers on contract for re-sale.
