Sopheap is 34 years old. She is married and resides with a child and a brother in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries and breeding pigs for more than two years, earning approximately $8 per day. Her husband runs a taxi service (motor taxi). He earns about $5 per day.
Due to lack of funds, Sopheap is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase piglets and fodder to use for breeding pigs. This money will help her expand her business and earn more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her child earn a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
