Nary is 42 years old. She is a mother of four children and resides with her husband in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia.
She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up animals for more than twenty years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is a teacher who earns about $4 per day. One of her children is employed as a credit officer and earns about $5 per day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Nary is requesting a loan of $1,300 to purchase fodder for breeding pigs. By doing so, her pigs will gain weight faster.
In the future, she would like to expand her pig farm and help her children earn Bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her house to make it bigger and more convenient for her family.
