Mrs. Yem S. is farmer and soup seller in Rong Village in Kampong Speu Province. Her soup selling business is facing some problems because the prices of ingredients have increased. Additionally, on her plantation, Mrs. Yem S. has insufficient animals to plough her rice field. She has therefore asked for a loan to buy cows to work in the field. Mrs. Yem S. is 40 and married with four children, all of whom are attending school. Her husband, Mr. Man Chin, is a subsistence farmer. Her husband is on the left of the picture.
