The woman in the photo is Mrs. Chek T., age 53, who lives in the Province of Kompong Tom in Cambodia, where she earns a living raising pigs. Since 1998, she has run this business and it has provided her with income to attain her standard of living. She is married with three children who are secondary school students.

In addition to her pig-raising trade, Chek T. and her husband always produce Khmer noodles and sell them in bulk to middlemen who then take the noodles to retail at the market. Recently, Chek T. used all of the raw materials from her stock and she wants to resupply by asking for this loan from Kiva.
