Mrs. Earn Y., 43 years old and married, has lived for years with other family members in a medium-sized wooden house in the Siem Reap Province. She earns a living selling fresh fish both in the local market and her village, acquiring her products from her husband's fishing or buying them from her wholesale suppler. Earn has six children, two of whom are employed.
In order to earn additional income, Earn is applying for a loan to buy pigs for her stall. She will use any remaining cash from the loan to mend her old motorcycle.
