Mrs. Mon Y., a 34-year-old widow, lives in Kraing Sromo Village in Kampong Chhnang Province, where she operates a restaurant business and sells Khmer noodles in the village. As well, Mrs. Mon Y. is both a subsistence farmer and pig breeder. She has three children, one of whom is a Khmer cake seller while the others assist her on the rice plantation. She would now like to expand her income, so she is seeking a loan to buy a piece of land in order to cultivate rice and to purchase more pigs. Previously, Mrs. Mon Y. obtained $125 from AMK to buy four piglets for breeding.
