This is the second time Mrs. Pov S. has asked for a loan to improve her business activity. She now lives in Trapaing Chrai Village in Takeo Province, and she is a pig breeder.
Since her business is going well, Mrs. Pov S. wants to expand it, so she decided to ask for a loan to buy eight more piglets for breeding. She would use the rest of the loan to purchase pig food.
Her husband, Mr. Nop Nhen, is a construction worker who does not make enough income to support his family.
Mrs. Pov S. is 47 years old and the mother of two children, one is a laborer in a rubber field while the other is attending school. Her husband is on the right in the photo.
