Ut helps his wife in managing the rice-farming business within the rainy season, and the rest of time, he is in the transportation business. He uses an old motorcycle to provide services to people in his neighborhood. Typically, he is able to make an average of USD $2.00 per day from this business. Ut starts his work schedule in early morning and works until five o’clock. He tries hard to earn money because he wants to provide a good living for his family and help his two children earn a degree later.
At present, Ut would like to request a loan in the amount of KHR 600,000 to add to his capital to purchase construction supplies such as bricks, cement, small stones and sand. This loan will be sufficient funds for Ut to repair and renovate his present house. He hopes that he will be able to provide a good education for his children.
