L. currently resides with five other family members in his small family home in Pursat Province.
He sells firewood out of his house by selling wholesale to customers. He usually carves wood from the forest to then sell, from which he can make around $5 per day.
He is married and the father of four children; all four of them are students and also help their parents in selling firewood. His wife is a farmer, and is always a good homemaker who cooks tasty foods for family and cares for the children.
L. humbly requests a loan to buy cows and buffalo to raise for offspring, and to use them to transport firewood to sell directly to customers' houses.
