Het is 31 years old. He is married and resides with one child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. He has been running public motorcycle transportation (a Tuk Tuk) for more than three years, making an income of $5 daily. His wife is involved in breeding pigs. She earns about $2 each day. In order to improve his family’s finances, Het requests a loan of $1000 to purchase fodder and piglets for breeding. By doing so, he would earn more income to financially support the family. In the future, he would like to expand the business and send his child to a good school.
