Mr. Kimsour Brak and his wife, Mrs. Pov Soun, live in a village along national road number four, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penn. They have three sons. One is married and lives away from home, one is a cobbler in a shoe factory and the third assists his father in the business.
Kimsour has been selling cows and oxen for more than twenty years. In addition, he is also a rice farmer. He hopes to continue expanding his business by purchasing more cows and oxen for resale. Hence he is asking for a loan of $1,000 to provide his capital.
