Ork is 57 years old. He is a humble villager from the Baray district in the Kompong Tom province of Cambodia. He lives with his family, including his wife and children.
Ork cultivates rice crops to provide an income for his family. He has been managing this business for nearly 14 years.
Ork has nine children, five of whom are married. Three of his children are employed in various jobs, including serving as a cleaner, construction worker and dump-truck driver. The children always share part of their incomes to support the family.
As of now, Ork has applied for a loan of $1,500 to purchase a dump truck for his son. He hopes that he will be able to make his son's business viable and provide a good income for the family. He hopes to receive the loan from Kiva lenders, and he is grateful for the help.
