Mrs. Nim N. lives in Daeum Rumdael village in Takeo province and was born in 1968. She is a farmer who owns a very small piece of land to grow rice to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Yan Yun, is a fisherman and as a side business owns a thrashing machine to earn some extra money to support the family.
They have a problem because her husband’s thrashing machine is too old to use. Thus, Mrs. Nim N. decided to seek a loan to buy a new thrashing machine.
She is the mother of three children all of whom are attending the local public school. Her husband is on the right in the photo.
