Tang's Group's story

Mrs. Tang S. is a group leader of four, who are all living in Korng Keb Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She is a farmer who owns 2.5 hectares to cultivate rice to earn a living. Aside from this, she is a cake seller who can make a small income to support the household. She is a 54-year-old widow with a child who helps her on the plantation. Although she and her child try to work hard, they still cannot support themselves well. Thus, Mrs. Tang S. decided to ask for a loan to buy two piglets to start a breeding business and she hopes to improve her living conditions after she sells the pigs.
