Mrs. Phun Y., 54, and her husband, Mr. Chay Lao, 72, who live in a small village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1967 and have seven children: three daughters and four sons. Three of their children are married and live outside the family home. Another three work in a plywood factory and the youngest one studies at the local school.

Phun and her husband have been raising pigs for three years; additionally, they farm and fish. The fishing season will soon arrive, but because Phun's fishing material is very old and beyond repair, she is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase new equipment as well as piglets for their other business.
