A loan of $700 helps a member to buy a motorcycle in order for him to commute to work on time.
Youet’s Group’s story
Originally from Siem Reap province, Youet is a 25-year-old-father of one kid who is underage for school. His main source of income is totally dependent on construction work, which he has been engaged in for five years. This business has earned him about 9 USD per day and he manages to save about 2.50 USD each day for emergency needs. Actually, he has a bit of a problem with transportation to get to work. In order to solve this problem, he created a group of two members to borrow his second loan via VisionFund. Youet will take his loan portion to buy a motorcycle in order to commute faster and get to work on time, which can save his time and reduce the cost of transportation service.
