Mrs. Sokun S., 31, and her husband, Mr. Pov Prich, 36, live in a small village across the Mekong River about eighteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married since 1997 and have two children. Their son studies in primary school and their daughter is still young and is at home.

Mrs. Sokun has been selling fish for eight years. She buys them from a fishing lot for resale to the middleman in her village. Her husband has been producing rice wine and raising pigs for three years. The couple want to expand their pig raising business. Therefore, Sokun is requesting a loan to purchase more pigs to raise.
