Mrs. Chanthoeun is a widow with five children, two of whom are laborers. The others are studying in the local public school. She was born in 1965. She cuts leaves of palm trees to make rooves for sale and she is a tailor and a farmer. She owns a very small piece of land where she grows rice to support for her own family. Although she tries to work hard, she can earn little income.
To improve this condition, Mrs. Chanthoeun is applying for a loan to add to her savings so that she can buy a cow for breeding to start a new business.
