Mrs. Chheng, 46, resides in the Prey Chor district. She is a married woman who has six children. One of her children has already married and lives independently.
Currently, Mrs. Chheng raises some pigs behind her house. From this business, she can earn approximately $1 each day. She has a life partner in her husband, who is a carpenter. He can generate a little income with Mrs. Chheng for using for the daily expenses.
In order to make more revenue, Mrs. Chheng has decided with her family to request some funds from HKL and Kiva in order to buy additional pig feed and piglets. She hopes these funds will make her family meet happiness and prosperity, and gain more benefit.
