Mrs. Neang is a married woman who was born in 1987. She and her husband have two children, both of whom are too young to work or study. To earn a living, she is a chicken breeder and a farmer. Indeed, she owns a half-hectare plot of land, on which she grows rice. She explains that she sells some of the rice she grows to local customers and keeps the rest of the rice to feed her family. Her husband, Mr. Phoeun, is a fisherman and a construction worker.

Although she and her husband work very hard, they are not generating as much income as they would like. So, to improve their standard of living, Mrs. Neang would like to start a new pig breeding business. As a result, she is applying for a loan in the amount of $375 to buy some piglets and pig feed, and any remaining balance of the loan proceeds would be used to buy more chickens.
