Mrs. Chrorn H. is a villager in Roluos village in Takeo province. She was born in 1964. She is a farmer who owns 3 hectares of land to cultivate rice to support her family. In addition, she is a Khmer cake seller and her husband, Mrs. Yoem Hun, is a sailor. With the rice field, they have a problem because their field has infertile soil. Thus, in order to improve the production of rice, Mrs. Chrorn H. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed. With the rest of the loan she would like to plow the rice field.
Chrorn H. is the mother of two children: one is attending the local public school and the other is a motorbike taxi driver. Her husband is on the right in the picture.
