Mr. Pon C. (pictured with his wife) and his wife, Mrs. Ky Phon, live in a small village across the Mekong River, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1975 and have five children. Three of the children are married and live outside the family home, one is a security guard, and one is a farmer. The couple is old, however they are still strong enough to work.

Pon has been selling cows for 35 years. He learned the business from his father. He buys cows from other villages and resell to customers who come to buy them at his home. His wife runs a grocery store in front of her house and is also a farmer.

Pon had asked for a Kiva loan once before, he now is requesting another loan of $1,200 USD to purchase additional cows for resale and to help his wife expand her grocery store.
