Chun C. is a 32-year-old man who lives with another family member in Ang Snoul district. For more than 3 years, he has been feeding chicken kept in a cage behind his house. He and his wife sell chicken and chicken eggs to earn a living. The couple could earn a profit of about $2 per day from this business.
Chun C. and his wife help each other to earn money to feed their two children. Both children are attending school.
The existing chicken cage is getting old and has many broken parts. The couple wants to mend and also enlarge the cage, but they don’t have enough cash to make it possible. To deal with this problem, Chum C. is asking for a loan to repair the broken cage.
