Mr. Yeur Y. is a villager in Svay Prey village in Kampong Cham province. He is a pig breeder. Because this business is going well, he wants to expand it; so he decided to ask for a loan to buy three more pigs for breeding. He would use the rest of the loan to buy pig food to feed his pigs. His wife, Mrs. Mon Tha, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. Mr. Yeur Y. is 27 years old and the father of a child who is too young to work or study because that child is only three years old. His wife is shown on the right of the photo.
