Mrs. Suy was born in 1952. She is married to Mr. Lor. They are farmers who own a two-hectare plot of land where they can grow both rice and vegetables that they sell to earn some money to support their family. She is a pig breeder, too. They support two children who are students and they are helping their parents’ businesses.
In the rice field, they have some problems because their field is infertile and far away from the irrigation system. It also has a lot of insects. So to improve production of rice, Mrs. Suy is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer, gasoline and pesticide. With the rest of the loan she is going to buy more pig food.
Her husband is in the photo with her.
