Chea B. is 47 years old and lives with two of her children in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Since 1988, she and her husband, Khem Tun, 48, have worked together as fishermen and growing rice. On average, they make $3 each day. Two of their children also sometimes help them to fish.
To earn more, Chea has requested a loan of $1000 to breed pigs. This will allow the family to double their daily income. (Khem Tun is pictured outside his home.)
