Mrs. Rot S. is 41 years old and she lives in Krang Touch village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a one-hectare field to cultivate rice. Her husband, Mr. Bros Soth, is a duck breeder who can earn a small income to support his family. In her farming, Mrs. Rot S. faces a problem because her rice field has infertile soil so she is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides. With the rest of the loan, she would like to buy ducklings and duck food. Mrs. Rot S. is a mother of four children who are all students in the local school. Her husband is shown on the right in the photo.
