Mrs. Kim S. T. is a villager in Thmor Reap Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She rears pigs and currently has eight of them. Since her business is going well, she wants to expand it, so she is requesting a loan to buy five more piglets for breeding. She will buy more pig feed with the rest of the loan. Her husband, Mr. Him Chanthar, is a soldier who earns a modest income to support the household. Mrs. Kim S. T. is 41 years old and the mother of three children who all attend the local school.
