Mrs. Ream M. is a villager in Slaeng village in Takeo province. She owns a small piece of land where she cultivates rice to earn a living. In this plantation, she faces a small problem because her field is infertile so she decided to ask for a loan to buy more fertilizer to support the field. She would use the rest of the loan to hire laborers to work in the field. Her husband, Mr. Dom Rum, is an electric cow driver who can make a small income to support the family.
Mrs. Ream M. has two children who are both too young to work or study. Her husband is in the picture with her.
