Mrs. Moeurn H. is a basket seller and farmer in Khnong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. Her husband, Mr. Huor Hom, is a fisherman. They have eight children, two of whom are basket makers while three others transport soil to sell for income. The remaining three are enrolling in school. Although Mrs. Moeurn H.’s family members have different business activities, they are still in poor living conditions. So Mrs. Moeurn H. decided to ask for a loan to buy pigs for breeding in order to improve their conditions. Previously, Mrs. Moeurn H. obtained a loan to buy an "electric cow" to plow her rice, field as well as to hire it for a profit. Her husband is on the right side of the photo.
