Mrs. Sean K. is a villager in Phnao Village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer in the local village. She is now about to cultivate rice because the rainy season is coming. Unfortunately, she does not have enough money to conduct this cultivation. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers and she will use the rest of money to hire laborers to work on the field.
She is 52 years old and the mother of five children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while another one is working in a company and the others are attending the local school. Her husband, Mr. Meas Nhinhj, is a palm juice collector who gathers juice to process into palm sugar and wine.
