Mrs. SengChan H. is a villager in Praek Doung village in Kandal province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land on which she cultivates mangoes. Now her operation has a problem because the field has a lot of insects damaging her produce.
In order to deal with this problem, Mrs. SengChan H. decided to ask for a loan to buy pesticides. She would use the rest of money to purchase fertilizer to support the field and make it more productive.
She is a 44-year-old widow with five children, three of whom are shoe sellers in the local market while the others are enrolled in the local school.
