Mr. Kov K. is 52 years old and a villager who lives in Kor village in Kandal province. He is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice. His wife, Mrs. Vy Sam, is a grocery seller who owns a store. With this business, he can earn a small income to support the family. Since his wife's business is going well he wants to enlarge it. Thus, he decided to ask for a loan to buy more groceries (white sugar, garlic, peppers, and so on) to expand his wife's business. This couple has three children, one of whom is a scrap seller while the other two are dessert sellers and support their mother's business. His wife is on the right in the picture.
