Mrs. Ly Y. is a villager in Spueu village in Takeo province and she was born in 1974. She is a farmer who owns a half-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice on to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Mom Srey, is a construction worker who can also earn some money to support his family. They try to work a lot but they can only earn a little income.
So to improve her family's living conditions, Mrs. Ly Y. is asking for a loan to buy some piglets and pig feed for breeding pigs to start a new business. She is a mother of three children, one of whom is attending local public school, while the others are too small to work or study.
