Mrs. Yim M. was born in 1974 and she lives in Srae Boeng village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a 5.5 hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. Her husband. Mr. Sao Nuon, owns an agricultural machine, but works as a fisherman.
Her problem is that the agricultural machine is too old to use but she does not have enough money to solve this problem. Mrs. Yim M. is applying for a loan to buy an agricultural machine to use instead of the old one.
She is the mother of four children who are all studying in school as well as helping with their parents’ businesses. Her husband is shown in the photo with her.
