Since her business is going well she wants to expand it, but she does not have enough money so is asking for a loan to buy more pigs, pig food, and vaccinations. Her husband, Mr. Khang Yorn, is a teacher in the local school and also farms his three-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to support his family. They have two children, one a teacher, and the other in school.
