Mrs. Suon, born in 1945, is a farmer who owns a rice field plot where she grows rice to earn a living. Currently, she wants to grow rice in the dry season but doesn’t have enough money to do this. She has therefore asked for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide and hire farm workers in order to support her crop.
Mrs. Suon is a widow with one child, who helps her with the farming.
