Mr. Thy A. is 46 years old and he lives in Thmei village in Takeo province. He is a farmer who owns a plot of land on which he grows a rice crop to support his family.
His wife, Mrs. Saret Chum, is a silk weaver. Since she now has more customers, she wants to expand her business. Thus, Mr. Thy A. decided to apply for a loA. to purchase additional silks. He would use the rest of the loA. to buy a watering machine and hoses to water his field.
Mr. Thy A. is the father of four children, one of whom is a silk weaver while the other three are attending the local public school. His wife is on the right in the photo.
