Sam is a loving mother who is in the age of 44. She is married with 4 children. She lives together with her family in Dongkor commune. To make a livelihood, Sam operates a selling business. She sells mixed products to the people in her commune. She sells things like soft drinks, groceries, sweet things and biscuits. She typically earns around $7.00 per day from this business. In order to upgrade her standard of living, Sam decided to get involved in a pig-raising business. However, she won’t be able to go further on her project due to the lack of financial capital.
And now, she would like to borrow some funds from HKL to purchase a few head of breeding pigs and to build a pigpen. Sam is very appreciative for the given loan to attain her dream of having a comfortable living. With the increase in income, she wants to save it to enlarge her pig-raising business in the coming years.
