Ouk is 58 years old and has three school-aged children who currently attend local schools. He is a government officer who works in the ministry of tourism of Cambodia located in KamponTom province. Ouk has been in this occupation for many years and earns a decent salary to support his family. He is very happy because his wife helps him with the household income by operating a grocery store and serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner to local people. Ouk and his wife agreed to educate their children up to a university degree and they try hard to support their basic needs.
Ouk is requesting a 1,500 USD loan to purchase a motorcycle to serve as a transportation service for his children as their high schools are far away from home. His loan will support his children in their education so they can earn degrees in the future and have better jobs.
