Mr. Sor works as a casual laborer in the Reussey Keo commune of Phnom Penh city. He has been engaged in his job since 2008 and has a formal salary. He has a life partner in his wife who is a used goods vender. She always goes around her community to buy many old things, plastic wires, bottle, can, and copper. She will sell them to her wholesaler, who then sells the goods in bulk to other countries. The couple helps each other to earn money to feed their two kids. Both of the kids are attending school. Mr. Sor is looking for a loan to use as capital to buy more used goods to stock for selling.
