Bopha is 23 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and one child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than seven years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is involved in breeding pigs and distilling alcohol. He earns approximately $5 per day. In order to provide enough food for the pigs, Bopha is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase fodder for breeding pigs. This money will help her pigs grow faster. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children get bachelor's degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
