Mrs. Chab K. married Mr. Sovanna Em and they live in Srae Boeng village in Takeo province. She is the mother of two children, who are farmers. She is a soup and congee (rice porridge) seller who earns a large profit to support her family. Her husband is a farmer who owns a 3.5 hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell. He is also a duck breeder who makes a small income to support his family. Her husband is shown in the photo with her.
Mrs. Chab K.'s problem is that her husband’s field has infertile soil. So, to improve production, she is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer. With the rest of the loan, she will rent a machine to plow the rice field and farm laborers.
