May is 24 years old and a married mother who has been blessed with two young kids. She resides in Ang Snoul district, a suburb of Phnom Penh. To help her husband earn an income for the family, May is employed in a local garment factory, receiving a normal payment monthly which she usually uses for daily food and saves for the future of her family-owned business including farming and a pig-raising business.
Right away, May would like to acquire a loan of 1,000 USD to purchase additional piglets, feeds and vitamins to provide good nutrition and nourish her pigs. This will help her spouse maintain the pig-raising business and will mean the pigs will yield more proceeds upon maturity. Through their tireless work, they hope to lead their family to a better standard of living someday.
