Mrs. Phuong S. is a villager in Si Sla village in Takeo province. She was born in 1980. She and her husband, Mr. Kosorl Ros, are farmers who own a 2.5-hectare plot of land that they use to cultivate rice to sell in order to support their family. Mr. Ros also is a duck breeder who earns money from selling duck eggs. Since her husband’s duck breeding job is going well, she wants to help him expand it. So, Mrs. Phuong S. is asking for a loan to buy sixty more ducks. With the rest of the loan money, she will buy fertilizer and pesticides, and will hire workers for her farm. She is a mother of two children, one who is studying in school, and the other who is three years old. Mrs. Phuong S. and her husband are featured in the photo.
