Kimly, 47, is married and resides with his wife and three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
He is a staffer in an agricultural company. His wife is a rice farmer. Two of his children are garment workers.
In order to improve his family's living conditions, Kimly is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to pay for his children's passport fees. By doing so, he will enable his children to legally seek jobs in Thailand to generate more income to support the family.
In the future, he would like to build a new house and support his youngest child to study through college.
