Mrs. Mon N. was born in 1962 and she lives in Rung village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns 1 hectare of land to cultivate rice for supporting her family living. In the rice field, she has some problems because her field has infertile soil and it has a lot of insects. Thus, in order to improve her rice production, Mrs. Mon N. decided to seek for a loan to buy fertilizer, pesticide and rice seed, and she will use the rest of the loan to plow the rice field. Her husband is a cow middleman. Through this activity, they support a child who is enrolled in local public school.
