Mr. Lorn L. (61) and his wife, Mrs. Hauly Thaung (56) who live along Tonle Basac River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1979 and have three children: one son and two daughters. Two of their children are married and live outside the family home and the youngest son is construction worker.

Mr. Lorn has been a mason and wooden house builder for fifteen years. His wife is not employed, and instead stays at home to do housework. Currently, Lorn's construction materials are old and broken so he needs to buy new materials to replace the old equipment. Therefore, Lorn is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase some new tools for his business. He will use the rest of the money to help his daughter with her grocery business.
