Ho is 60 years old and lives in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. He operates a farm as well as a business carving mortars in his village. He is married to a humble resident and has five children who are married already. During the rainy season, Ho spends much of his time in the rice field. He devotes his spare time at home to making mortars and pestles for additional income. Ho tries hard to complete his daily tasks, because he is eager to uplift his standard of living someday.
Ho is asking for a loan of 2,000,000 riels to purchase raw granite mortars used in his business. He hopes that he will be able to increase the volume of his production through this loan. He is very thankful for the loan, as it’s his second one. He never made any late payments the previous time.
