Mrs. Sarin M. is 50 years old and lives in Kouk Doang village in the Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns 4.5 hectares on which to cultivate rice. On this plantation, she has some problems because her field has infertile soil. Thus, Mrs. Sarin Men decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers to support the field. She would use the rest of the loan to buy a watering machine to water her crop.
Her husband, Mr. Lorn Om, is a house contractor and he can earn a little income to help his family. She is the mother of three children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the youngest is attending the local school. Her husband is on the left in the photo.
