Mrs. Chory M. is 60 years old and she lives in Khvav village in Takeo province. She is widow with two children, one of whom is a basket-maker and the other one is a coconut-seller. Chory is a farmer; she is a basket-maker also. Although she tries to work hard with both businesses, she still earns less income than she needs to support her standard of living, so she wants to start a new business. She decided to ask for a loan to buy a cow for breeding. With this loan, she hopes to increase her income and improve her support of the family.
