Mrs. Samorn N. is a subsistence farmer. In addition to this activity, she owns a grocery store in Peam Khlai Village in Kampong Speu Province. Although Mrs. Samorn N. has two business activities, her family's situation has not improved. So Mrs. Samorn N. asked for a loan to buy cows for breeding as well as to plow her rice field. Mrs. Samorn N. is the mother of four children, three of whom are studying in state school, while the youngest child stays at home. Her husband, Mr. Oeurng Bu, is a tractor driver. Previously, Mrs. Samorn N. obtained a loan to buy a big pot to produce a white wine to sell to a middleman and the villagers. Last year, Mrs. Samorn N.’s youngest child got a lung disease and she spent $75 to cure that disease. Her husband is also pictured in the photo.
