Mrs. Sean T. is a 35-year-old rice farmer, living in Chvek Village in the Kampong Speu Province. She is the mother of three children: one child works as a construction worker, another child works at a garment factory, and the other child is enrolled in school. Her husband, Ork Dorm Run, pictured on the left, collects palm juice to sell. Mrs. Sean T. has already received one loan from AMK to buy pigs for breeding purposes, and she is a very good client as she has made all of her loan repayments on time. Because the pig-breeding business is going so well, she would like to start another business raising cows. Thus, she is seeking another loan to purchase cows.
