Keo lives in the Baray district with his wife and three dependent children. He is in the farming business, and at the same time makes palm sugar to sell for additional income. He has been doing this for over 20 years now, and earns a net profit of KHR 34,000 per day, on average.
He still wants to pursue his business of making sugar, which is why he has requested a loan of KHR 1,500,000 to buy chopped wood and other materials needed for his process. This will enable him to boost the income, thus provide his family members with their basic needs.
Someday he would like to keep growing as a successful businessman with his family-owned businesses.
