A loan of $700 helped to replace a motorbike and a passenger trailer (tuk tuk).

Dina's story

Mr. Dina S., 38, and his wife, Mrs. Saret Vor, 34, live in a small village across the Mekong River about 13 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1998 and have three children: two sons and one daughter. Two of their children are in school and another one is a baby. Besides his children he also has his parents living with him.

Dina has been driving a motor taxi (tuk tuk) for four years, which he drives in Phnom Penh. Mrs. Saret Vor has been selling gasoline for seven years. She buys it from Phnom Penh for resale in her village.

Dina’s motorbike and a passenger trailer were broken and he spent a lot of money to repair it. Moreover, it is difficult for him to earn income to support his family. So Dina is applying for a loan of $700 to make the replacement.
