Horng S. is 33 years old and works raising pigs on her plot of land near her house. She normally makes around US$3 per day.
Her husband Tep Hang, 37, has a business making rice wine at his home to earn a living and is able to make US$5 a day. Rice wine is good and poor people like to drink it because it is cheap.
To make more money, Horng is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to increase her livestock and purchase more feed for pigs.
