Mr. Roem L. lives in Prey Run village in Takeo province. He and his wife, Mrs. Yun Kimsan, are farmers. They own a piece of land on which they cultivate rice to earn a living. In this plantation, Mr. Roem L. faces an obstacle because he does not have enough money to plow, to buy fertilizer, or to hire laborers to work on the rice field. Therefore, Mr. Roem L. has decided to ask for a loan to use towards running his rice business. He has a child, two years old, who is too young to work or study. His wife is on the left of the photo.
