Huon resides with her husband and four single children in Baray district, Kompong Tom. Most of her children are students attending local public schools. Huon earns a living by cultivating rice both seasons of the year. She is now 31 years old and she has been in the business since 2008.
For additional income, Huon would like to ask for some funds from Kiva partner, HKL, to purchase piglets for fattening and a sow for breeding purposes. She hopes she will be able to make a good income from the investment.
