Mrs. Muth M., a Khmer noodle seller in Kraing Sromor Village in Kampong Chhnang Province, is a 44-year-old widow with a child who is employed in a garment factory. Although the family has only two members, they still live in poor conditions. Thus Mrs. Muth M. is requesting a loan to buy a piece of land to cultivate rice as well as pigs to start a breeding business. Previously, Mrs. Muth M. obtained $125 from AMK to buy rice to keep in stock to sell later at a better price.
