the downtown market of Phnom Penh city. Every morning, she and her husband always bring pork,
beef and bones of the pig and cow from local slaughter place and distribute some
amount to small sellers, and she keeps some to sell at her store.

5 years, she and her husband were small sellers, they can sell about 20kg to
30kg of meat and bones every day. Since this couple start many years of this
business and there are many customers to support her business, they can expand
their business by increase their selling from 100kg to 130kg per day (mostly bones) which is the revenue is about 16,860 USD per month with the expense of the business is about 14,727 USD per month. The meat
