Mrs. Seng S. lives in Boeng Krum Leu Village in Kandal Province. She is a breeder who raises 14 pigs. Because her pigs now are bigger and bigger, she cannot afford to buy pig food; so she decided to ask for a loan to buy more pig food to feed her pigs. Her husband, Mr. Soeng Ravoeurn, helps her in the current business. Mrs. Seng S. is 29 years old and the mother of two children. One child is attending the local school, and the younger one is four years old and thus too young to work or study. Mrs. Seng S.’s husband is shown on the right of the photo.
