Sos, 42, is married and currently lives with his one child and her mother in the Reussey Keo commune of Phnom Penh City.
He is a fruit trader. Every day, he leaves his home to buy fruits in bulk from local farmers and then he sells it in the busy market. He has been in this selling business since 2007 and earns more or less $5 a day to cover the whole family's expenses.
Currently, his selling business is getting better step-by-step, and he often adds new clients who come to buy his fruits. To expand this business, Sos is requesting a loan in the amount of $700 to purchase more fruits for future sale.
