Pol is 60 years old and a humble villager living in Baray district of Kompong Tom province. He is married and has eight children - two married children and six single children. He is a very hard-working man who is eager to raise his family out of poverty and get ahead in his businesses. He is involved in a farming business, primarily growing rice for daily sustenance and for sale. At the same time, he raises a few piglets for fattening in his backyard. Some of his teenaged children help him in managing the two businesses.
To improve his business and earn a better living, Pol is requesting a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to purchase a used motorbike for his business and household transportation needs. He is very grateful for the loan granted because he will be able to go a long way.
