A loan of $700 helped to breed more pigs and purchase feed.

Hut's story

Hut Y., 48, grows rice to earn a living and is able to make less than US$1 each day. She says growing rice is hard and uses a lot of labor. The weather conditions have not been favorable for farming this past year. Along with increased inflation, it has been a difficult year economically in much of Cambodia. She plants rice two times a year; first, in the rainy season which takes about 6-7 months, and second, in the dry season but there are only 3-4 months to collect the harvest.

Her husband, Ton Hun, 48, has a business selling ice-cream and makes US$4 per day. Besides farming and selling ice-cream, this couple is also raising pigs from their home for extra income. Hut Y. would like to take out a loan of US$700 to breed more pigs and to purchase feed as well.
