Mrs. Sok Heang N. is a villager in Srae Ampil village in Kandal province, and she is 38 years old. She is a farmer who rents a small piece of land to cultivate rice to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Vuth Saun, is a motorbike taxi driver.
In the rice field, this family has some problems because the field has infertile soil, but they do not have enough money to improve it. Thus, Mrs. Sok Heang N. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers, and she would also like to buy pesticides.
She is the mother of five children, all of whom are enrolled in the local public school. Her husband is on the right in the picture.
