Kheng is 27 years old and married. She is from Baray, Kompong Thom province.
Kheng has been raising pigs for both meat and offspring, which she has been doing for over five years. She built a piggery where she raises her pig behind her house. After raising them for about four months, she sells her pigs to tradesmen who kill them for meat. She earns about $1.50 per day.
Presently, her family does not have a motorcycle. When they want to go somewhere, they have to pay for a motor taxi service. In order to solve this problem, Kheng is requesting a loan to purchase a motorcycle. In the future, she plans to create a new business by selling mixed products in her community. In addition, she wishes to fix some broken parts of her house.
