Nor is a 42-year-old industrious mother of three adult children. To earn a living, Nor has two business ventures in Kampong Thom province. She cultivates seasonal crops and raises piglets for an additional profit. Her husband works in the same career and always helps to manage their daily tasks at their farms.
As of now, Nor needs to borrow a loan in the sum of 2,000,000 KHR to buy 10 pigs and feed for the pigs. When the pigs mature, Nor hopes to sell them in the local markets at a good price. In the future, Nor aims to enlarge her pig farm and increase the number of pigs that she raises. She thanks lenders for their generosities and good will towards poor fellows like her to improve her family-owned business.
