Chhuon is 36 years old and married to a farmer. They have four single children, one of whom is employed while the other three children are still students. They live together in Pouk district, Siem Reap province. Chhuon raises hogs while her husband manages their rice farming business. Despite the hardship of living, she aims to improve her hog-raising business to increase her income and satisfy their needs.
Chhuon wants to build a proper wooden pigpen to protect her pigs and keep them healthy. Due to inadequate capital, she is asking for a loan to build a pigpen and buy feed, vitamins and additional piglets to raise. She mentioned that the loan will help her improve the business and hopes that she will be successful in managing the business.
