Chan T. is a villager who has an occupation raising pigs. She has had a small pigpen next to her house for nine years and she can raise at least two litters a year. In addition, she sells a few cakes to her neighbors in the village for additional profit.
She is married to Cheang Choun (he is shown in the picture), who drives a motorbike taxi. Recently, Chan T.'s husband can't generate as much revenue as before because his motor is not attractive to his clients. Therefore, Chan T. has decided to ask for a loan to replace her husband's old motor.
