This is 39 year old Sorie. He is married and has two children, ages 5 & 10. He has 1 additional dependent, who is living with him because of school.

In 1997, Sorie established his sand business. His business is located on the outskirts of town, and his main customers are building construction men.

Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 800,000 monthly from this business. He would like a loan of Le 4,000,000, with which he plans to purchase a 25kva horse power outboard motor to be use to transport his sand for resale.

He hopes that this loan will help simplify faster transportation of the sand, so he can realize a huge profit.

In the future, Sorie plans to build, and educate his children to the university level. He thanks you for your support.
