Mrs. Nov H., age 32, lives in Tuol Svay village in Takeo province. She and her husband, Mr. Youn Yos, are farmers who own two hectares of land to grow rice and vegetables, which allows them to earn a small income to support their family.
In order to support this farm, Mrs. Nov H. has decided to ask for a loan in order to dig a well and to buy fertilizer, pesticide, and gasoline in order to support her farming crops.
This couple has two children: one is attending the local school and the other is five years old. Her husband appears in the photo with her.
