Mrs. To P., aged 24, is a resident of Prongel Commune in Pursat Province. She has been raising pigs in her backyard since 2001.
P. has no children and married to Mr. Chaom Map, 23, who makes a living by carving statues for sale, earning him a daily income of approximately $5. P. is requesting a loan of $700 for her husband to purchase more marbles to remake a statue. This loan will eventually help their family earn additional income to sustain their daily expenses. (Mrs. P.'s husband is pictured because she was not available.)
