Mrs. Samorn M. is a villager in Si Sla village, Takeo province, and she was born in 1961. She is a farmer who owns a two-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Vuthy Vong, is a soldier who gets a low salary to help support his family.
Her problem is that her field is far away from an irrigation system, and she does not have enough money to solve that problem. So to improve her production, Mrs. Samorn M. is seeking a loan to buy a pump machine, and with the rest of the loan she will buy fertilizer, pesticide, and hire a plow machine to plow her field.
She is the mother of a child who is now married. Her husband is shown in the photo with her.
