Pech is 26 years old. She is married and resides with one child in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in an agricultural business and selling palm juice for more than three years, earning approximately $6 per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) helps her run the business.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Pech is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase piglets to breed and resell when they gain weight. By doing so, she would earn additional income to financially support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and send her child to a good school.
