Hong, 40, is married and resides with his wife and two school-age children in Kampong Chnnang Province, Cambodia. He is a construction foreman. His wife is a dessert vendor.
Due to a lack of enough construction materials, Hong is requesting a loan of USD 500 to purchase more to use in his work. This will enable him to run his construction work smoothly and increase his income. In the future, he would like to build a new house and support his children to go further in their education.
