Mrs. Tob N., born in 1954, lives in Slaeng village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to grow both rice and vegetables which she sells to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Roeun Van, is a construction worker, fisherman and owns a stereo hi-fi instrument which he hires out to villagers. In the plantation, she has had some problems because her rice field is ready to grow rice but she did not have enough money to support it. So, in order to improve production, Mrs. Tob N. is applying for a loan to do farming, hire farming laborers and buy fishing supplies. She has two children, one of whom is a driver while the other is a farmer. Her husband is in the picture with her.
