Mrs. Sopha C. is a villager in Khmos village in Kandal province. She is a grocer who owns a small grocery store for selling food. Her husband, Mr. Ros Ban, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to earn income for the family. It is now the rainy season, so it is time for him to cultivate. Unfortunately, he does not have enough money to buy fertilizers and a pump to support the rice field. Mrs. Sopha C. decided to ask for a loan to buy them for her husband. She has four children, two of whom are attending the local school while the others are too young to work or study.
