Mr. Phat P., 48, and his wife, Mrs. Somaly Kong, 35, married in 1992 and have three children: two sons who attend school and one daughter who has full-time employment in a plywood factory. The family lives along National Road Number Six about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Phat and his wife have been growing vegetables for 10 years. Beside farming, they also sell firewood at their house. The couple hopes to expand their firewood business, that's why Phat is asking for a loan of US$ 1000 to purchase a wood-cutting machine and to buy firewood for re-sale.
