Mrs. Vicheka K. (pictured above) and her husband, Mr. Bunthoeun Pon, live on an Island on Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married since 2005 and have one daughter.

Vicheka and her husband are weavers. They sell their finished products to a middleman in the village who then in turns to sell in Phnom Penh. In addition the couple also raises pigs at home.

Vicheka hopes to expand her business raising pigs, so she is applying for a loan of $1,000 US to purchase more piglets to raise.
