Mrs. Chea S. is a villager in Angkunh village in Takeo Province. She owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice where she and her husband, Mr. Long Neang (pictured on the right in the photo), work as farmers. She is 51-years-old and the mother of six children; five of whom are employed in a garment factory while the sixth works in a casino club.

Even though Mrs. Chea S.’s family members are involved in several different businesses, they still do not earn enough money to support their living conditions. Thus, Mrs. Chea S. has decided to request for a loan to purchase a cow to improve her farming livelihood. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with this loan.
