Chvong's priority in life is to improve his family's living conditions. He has six children, some of whom are attending school, and he needs to pay for their daily allowances. He wants to earn consistent profits for their education. That’s why he has devoted himself to his rice farming business and to climbing palm trees for juice. From these activities, he is able to generate an income of four USD per day.
Chvong wants to improve his business and increase his income, so he is asking for a loan of 1,300 USD to purchase two head of cattle. He will use them for farm work and fatten them. He hopes to sell them at a profit in the future and thus ensure a good living for his family.
