Chom is 39 years old and a resident of the Baray district. She has been blessed with 5 children, all of whom are single and unemployed and live together in a house with their parents.

Chom runs a small business at home, raising piglets in a wooden pigpen built by her husband. Her husband is in the business of selling firewood from his trailer. Chom is able to generate less income than her husband, earning approximately $1.50 per day. Due to the lack of animals for hauling a firewood trailer, Chom’s husband won’t be able to operate the business well. So now Chom is requesting a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a buffalo, which can be used to haul the trailer, to support in her husband’s business. In the future, Chom hopes to rebuild her present house to make it much stronger and to provide better living conditions.
