Mrs. Oeun A. is 24 years old and she lives in Pongro village in Takeo province. She is the mother of a child who is too young to study or work. Her husband, Mr. Run Sart, is a duck breeder who is able to earn a small income to support his family by selling eggs.
Mrs. Oeun A. is a farmer who owns 5-hectare (12.5-acre) field on which she cultivates rice. In this plantation she has obstacles because the field has infertile soil and not enough water to support it. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed plus a water pump to support her plants.
