Mrs. S., age 22, earns a living by working in a garment factory. She gets a fixed salary of $70 per month to help solve her family's financial problems. S. has a partner in her husband who farms a rice crop. They are parents of a child who attends school. The daily revenue of the family is not sufficient to support them. Thus, S. has decided to apply for a loan to purchase piglets to breed and pig food. She is hopeful that this will provide her with extra profit.
S. was busy working, so her husband appears in the photo.
