Mrs. Seng P. is a 38-year-old married woman and a local villager living in a medium-sized home with family members in Kompong Tom Province. She owns a piece of farmland that she inherited many years ago from her grandparents. She uses this land to grow different kinds of crops to ensure that her family maintains a good lifestyle. However, the family income is not enough to support them, and Seng P. wants to earn additional income. The loan she is requesting will allow her to buy piglets for a stall she has already built, so she can increase the profits from her business.
