Ven is a 56-year-old married man and a loving father of three school-aged children. He is hard-working and works in two different businesses, farming rice and selling chopped wood. After finishing his tasks in the fields, he continues selling his chopped wood from his animal-pulling trailer and earns approximately KHR 20,000 per day, but this income is barely enough to cover their monthly expenses.
Because of this reason, Ven’s son plans to work as a paid laborer in Thailand to financially support the family. Ven has applied for a loan of KHR 6,000,000, which he aims to use to cover the costs of his son such as traveling expenses, food and accommodations. He will also use the remaining balance to sustain his wood-selling business by increasing his stock of wood. He awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.
