Saroeun is married to Mrs. Sao Vanny and both of them are farmers who own a small piece of land where they grow rice, and they are chicken breeders. Although they try to work hard, they can earn little income.
To improve this condition, Saroeun is asking for a loan to buy some piglets for breeding to start a new business. With the rest of the loan he is going to buy some materials to make rice wine, which is also a new business for him. He is the father of three children, one of whom is a laborer, another one does housework, and the last is too young to work or study.
