Mrs. Chanra S. lives in Prey Melong Thboung village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice. Her husband, Mr. Ung Pon, is a pig breeder. Since his breeding business is doing well, he wants to expand it.
So Mrs. Chanra S. decided to ask for a loan to buy more piglets and food for her husband's breeding. She has two children who are too young to work or study because they are at the ages of three and five years old. Her husband is on the right of the photo.
