Mrs. Nav is a married woman who has 5 children, one of whom is a laborer, while the others are attending local public school. The children also help with the family business. She and her husband, Mr. Sre, are farmers who own a 1-hectare plot of land where they can grow both rice and vegetables. They sell part of the crops and with the rest they support their family. Mrs. Nav has some problems because the soil in her field is infertile and it is far away from an irrigation system. So to improve production, Mrs. Nav is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline, and with the rest of the loan she wants to dig a well.
Mrs. Nav is shown in the photo with her husband.
