Peou S. is an older man, 55 years old and father. Since 1980, he has been working as a chief of social affair in province. He is married to Sokhom, age 51, who stays at home to raise a few poultries and look after for the children as well. The older couple was married years ago and blessed with three children; one of whom is married. Two of their children are employed: their first daughter is a poultry breeder and second son is a Cambodia guide and a taxi driver. Peou S.’s son would like to operate his taxi service at the airport but he is required to pay a service fee. Therefore Peou S. would like a loan to allow his son to pay the airport service fee so he can find customers at the airport which will help him attract more tourists and earn extra income.
