Mrs. Laet K. is 25 years old and lives in Andoung Samretth village in Takeo province. She is married with two children who are twins and too young to study or work. She and her husband, Mr. Sochea Sao, are farmers who own a two-hectare field on which they cultivate rice. Mr. Sochea Sao (pictured on the right) also owns a rice milling machine that he rents out to other farmers to use. He can earn only a small income to support his family.
Mrs. Laet K. is now requesting 2,000,000 Riel to purchase more rice to mill and resell and piglets and pig food for pig breeding. This loan will help to increase her income and improve her family living too.
