Dorn P., age 26, is married and lives in the Kampong Cham province. She is a farmer and typically earns about $2.30 each day. Her husband, Keo Rath, 22, raises ducks for eggs and sells them to the market to earn around $10 each day. This couple has a young child.
Raising ducks is the main income for the family, so Keo would like a loan to raise many more ducks. (Dorn is pictured at the duck farm)
