Mrs. Koem En P. lives in Poun village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a plot of land on which she cultivates rice to earn a living. In this plantation, she faces an obstacle because she does not have enough money to plow the rice field and to buy fertilizer to make her crop more productive. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan for this purpose.
Mrs. Koem En P. is 26 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom is enrolled in the local school while the other is too young to work or study. Her husband, Mr. Sam Sopheak, is a motorbike taxi driver and he is shown with her in the photo.
