Pov is 48 years old. She is married and resides with four children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. Pov has been involved in growing rice, and fattening pigs and poultry for more than twenty years, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband helps her run the business. Three of her children are employed. They earn about $9 daily. Pov is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase cattle, fertilizer and seeds to use for farming.
