Sun, aged 36, is a diligent farmer who lives with her spouse and some of her children in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. Sun and her husband work together in a farming and hog-raising business to ensure a better standard of living for their children. Together, they have been in these fields for almost 20 years and have an abundant harvest every season. They are responsible for five children – the oldest one is married, and another child is employed in a phone repair shop in Phnom Penh.
Sun is now applying for a loan of 1,000 USD to purchase more piglets and feeds for nourishing them. Her ambition is to own a big pig farm in her village so she can supply pig meat to her area. She hopes to attain her dreams someday as she continuously strives to work harder.
