Mrs. Samoeurn T. is 41 years old and she lives in Roneam Tnaot village, Takeo province. She and her husband, Mr. Sombo T., are farmers who own 3 hectares (7.5 acres) of field on which they cultivate rice.
However hard this couple tries to work, they still earn less income than needed to support their family. In order to improve their living standards, Mrs. Samoeurn T. decided to ask for a loan to buy a plowing machine for her husband. He would use the plowing machine to plow their field and it will be hired by the villagers.
Mrs. Samoeurn T. is the mother of two children who are both students in the local school.
