Mrs. Vuoch L. lives in Spork Reach Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She is a pig breeder who raises twelve pigs. Her husband, Mr. Liv Bunla, is a taxi driver who can generate a small income to support his family. Although Mrs. Vuoch L. and her husband both have businesses, they still cannot afford to buy a piece of land to keep and then re-sell later. Thus, Mrs. Vuoch L. decided to ask for a loan for this purpose. Mrs. Vuoch L. is 38 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom is attending the local school, while the youngest one is five years old and too young to work or study.
