Nhim C., 41, (pictured with his wife), has a business selling cows and makes US$50 in revenue every day. His wife is a farmer, who grows rice and vegetables to sell at the market. She earns about US$1.50 per day. The couple has five children and all of them are in school. The business of selling cows is making good money to support the family, thus Mr. Nhim C. is asking for a loan to purchase additional cows for resale.
