Mrs. Prak S. sells chickens in the local market which is located in Trapaing Chhum Village in Kampong Chhang Province. Her husband, Mr. Koem Un, is a firewood seller and pig breeder. Since Mr. Koem Un's firewood selling business is going well, he wants to sell it door-to-door. Thus, Mrs. Prak S. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy a motorbike to transport firewood to sell door-to-door. Mrs. Prak S. is 36 years old and the mother of four children, two of who are enrolled in the local school. Her husband is shown on the left of the photo.
