      Sok Mao, 59, is married and lives with her husband and three employed children in Kampong Cham province. She and her husband are farmers, growing rice and bean to earn a living since they get married. Beside farming, she also trades rice and bean from local farmers to resell to wholesaler. They also raise ducks for eggs and pigs to earn an additional income to support the family. 

      Sok Mao is now requesting for a loan to raise more ducks and pigs. She hopes that this investment would bring more income for her family.
