Rithy is 36 years old. He is married and lives in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. He has been employed as a policeman for more than 10 years, earning about $5 per day. His wife is a garment worker who earns about $3 daily. In order to improve his family’s finances, Rithy is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase chickens and fodder for breeding.
