Mrs. Chan S. is 46 years old and lives in Cheav Bdei Khang Kaeut village, Takeo province. She and her husband are farmers who own a three-hectare field to cultivate rice. In the dry season, they do not have enough water to support their crop so Mrs. Chan S. decided to ask for a loan to buy a water machine and dig a well. Aside from being a farmer, her husband, Mr. Leap Krich, (on the right in the photo) owns a cart to deliver goods which helps add to the family's income. Mrs. Chan S. has a child who is cow breeder.
