This is the second time that Mrs. Sam S. A. has asked for a loan to improve her business. She is a pig breeder in Dei Edth Kaoh Phos Village in Kandal Province. In her business, Mrs. Sam S. A. raises pigs under the house and it is very difficult for her to look after her pigs.

Thus, Mrs. Sam S. A. decided to ask for a loan to buy cement and brick in order to build a piggery. Her husband, Mr. Tith Chanreaksmey, is a jewelry maker who melts gold to make jewelry. Mrs. Sam S. A. is 43 years old and the mother of five children, one of whom owns a small jewelry store in the local market while three others are attending school. The youngest one is too young to work or study because that child is only four. Mrs. Sam S. A.'s husband is shown on the right of the photo.
