Sokha is 46 years old. She is married and resides with six children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fish and fattening up animals for more than ten years, earning approximately $5 each day. Her husband is a motor taxi driver who makes an income of $5 daily.
To feed her pig much better, Sokha is requesting a loan of $800 to purchase fodder and vaccine for feeding her pig. This purchase will help her pig grow faster. In the future, she would like to purchase a farm, run an agricultural business, and help her children earn higher education. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
