Pa C. was born in 1977; she is a married woman and is blessed with four children. Three of them are students at the local public school. Her husband's name is Moun, 41, and he is a domestic farmer in Prey Chor district. She has built a pigpen behind her house where she raises many pigs to earn a living. As the pig-raising business is very profitable, she has requested a loan of US$ 1100 to buy additional feed and piglets to raise for sale when pork is commanding the highest price. With the remainder of the funds, she will support her husband's farming business.
