Mrs. Sophea Y. was born in 1983. She lives in Angk Ta Kob village, in Takeo province, with her family. Her husband, Mr. Eam Net, is a rice wine maker. They have two children who are too young to work or study.
As a pig breeder, Mrs. Sophea Y. is able to earn money to support her family. But she has a problem because her pigs are too small to sell. To improve this situation, she is seeking a loan to buy more pig food, and to dig a well, which will also be used for her pig-breeding.
Her husband is in the photo with her.
