Mrs. Kov M. is a widow and she lives in Popeal Khae village in Kandal province. She is a farmer who owns one-hectare field to cultivate rice. She faces an obstacle because her field is not very fertile and she can't grow much, so she does not enough money to support herself or her family well. Thus, Mrs. Kov M. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer, and would use the rest of the loan to buy pesticide to use on her rice field. Mrs. Kov M. is a mother of two children, one of whom is employed in the public sector and the other is employed in an organization.
