Un C., 31, is a farmer who lives in Kompong Cham Province. Un C. earns about $2.5 per day. In addition, she raises a few pigs in a stall at her home.
Un C. is married to SokVeng, age 34, who assists her in the business. The couple has been married for years, and they have three children. All of them are single and are attending school.
With growing family expenses, Un C. needs to increase her income. Un C. requests a loan of $600 to purchase small pigs to raise, and the remaining funds to buy additional feed. By using this loan she will get more profit and be able to support her family effectively.
Un C. was busy when the photo was taken, so her husband is shown instead.
