This is the third time that Mrs. Chet V. has asked for a loan to improve her living conditions. She is a teacher in Soben (Dream) Village in Kampong Chhnang Province, and she can make $30 per month which is very little to support her family. Aside from this, she is a pig breeder. Her husband, Mr. Pok Samorn, is a government officer in the Tax Department in the provincial town. Mrs. Chet V.'s neighbor wants to sell a piece of land at a reasonable price, so Mrs. Chet V. wants to buy it to then resell later at a better price. Therefore, she decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings, and achieve this goal. Mrs. Chet V. is 54 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory while the other is attending school. Previously, Mrs. Chet V. had obtained a loan to buy pigs for breeding. She has fully paid it back.
