Mrs. Chan Y., 46, lives in Ta Ou Khang Cheung village in Takeo province. She is a pig breeder and her husband, Mr. Sok Sim, is a farmer who owns a small plot of land to cultivate rice to support their family. The couple has four children, one a clothes designer, and the others in school. Although they work hard, they have very little income. Mrs. Chan Y. has therefore decided to apply for a loan to buy two cows to breed.
