Koemphal (pictured in the photo) is a 40-year-old tailor. Her husband, Noeurn, is a 39-year-old construction worker. They live in a village along National Road number five, which is approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1986, and they have three children: two sons and one daughter. One child is a garment worker, one is a driver, and another is in school.
Koemphal wants to start a new business of raising chickens, so she is asking for her first loan of $500 to buy baby chickens to raise as well as chicken feed.
