Than, age 31, generates her income by engaging in rice and hog husbandry. She works on her farm alongside her husband, annually growing rice crops for both sustenance and for sale. She has been managing these two businesses for more than 10 years. She aims to raise their status of living so that she can ensure a bright future for her three children.
Than hopes to strengthen her hog-raising business and make it a viable source of income. Because of insufficient capital, she is asking for a loan of 1,500,000 KHR to buy more pigs, feed and vitamins needed for hog-raising. She believes that her loan will enable her to make improvements in her business and hopes that she will be able to make a good income from this type of business in the future.
