Choeun is 47 years old and she is a widow with three children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory. Another one is a driver who gets a low salary, and the last one is studying in the local public school. She is a farmer who owns a one-hectare plot of land where she grows rice. She sells part of the rice yield, and with the other part she supports her family. Besides farming, she is also a chicken breeder.
Currently she wants to start a new business, but her savings is not enough to buy a cow. So to improve this condition, Choeun would like to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy a cow for breeding.
