Mr. Chanthorn P. is a villager in Rolus village in Takeo province. He is a farmer who owns a plot of land where he cultivates rice. His wife, Mrs. Eng Mom, is a pig breeder. Aside from that business, she sells Pro Hok in the local market. Since her business is doing well, she wants to expand it. Thus, Mr. Chanthorn P. decided to ask for a loan to buy more Pro Hok (a condiment nicknamed "Cambodian Cheese" made of salted fermented fish) for his wife to re-sell. He hopes to increase their income and improve his family's living conditions. He is 26 years old and the father of a child who is just 2 years old. He and his wife are both in the picture.
