Sophea, 29, is a driver. He also supplements his income with another business – buying cows and oxen and selling them to a middleman who comes to buy them at his house. His wife, Srey Oun plants small mango trees and sells them from home. The couple lives in a village off National Road Number Two, about twenty kilometers south of Phnom Penh. They have been married since 2008 and just had a young daughter.

Sophea is asking for a loan of $1,000 to purchase more cows and oxen for sale.
