Mrs. Yoem K. Y. lives in Smaong village in Takeo province. She was born in 1973. She and her husband, Mr. Mos Nob, are farmers who own a 2-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support their family. Mr. Mos Nob is also a gecko middleman. (Khmer people use grilled gecko to make traditional medicine.) Although they both work hard, they earn little money to support the family. So, to improve her family living, Mrs. Yoem K. Y. is seeking a loan to buy ten piglets and pig food for breeding to start a new business. With the rest of the loan she plans to buy fertilizer. She is a mother of three children, one of whom is a seamstress in garment factory, while the others are students.
