Phallim is 36 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. Phallim raises pigs at home and her husband is a pig vendor.
Phallim is requesting a 700 USD loan to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to transport pigs to sell. With a motorbike, her husband can more easily carry pigs to market and generate more income to support the family. In the future, Phallim would like to expand her husband’s pig-selling business, renovate her house, and send her children to a good school.
