Touch is 41 years old, and his wife, Chrep, is 39. They have been married since 2012 and have four daughters. Two are garment workers and other two are in school. The family lives in a village about 28 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Touch fishes and builds houses for a living, while his wife is a garment worker. In addition, they grow rice when rice farming season comes.

Touch is asking for a loan in the amount of $1,300 to improve his rice farm. He will use it to buy fertilizer and purchase a cow to raise.

He hopes he will be able to earn extra income from selling calves when the cow delivers a baby.
