Mrs. Nang T., a 30 year old widow with three children, lives in Kraing Sromor Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. One of her children is a taxi driver, another attends school, while the youngest one is too young to work or study. Mrs. Nang T. is currently in the fish sales business. Despite multiple incomes from family members, her family does not have sufficient income to invest in a rice field. As the value of rice fields is rising, she would like to invest in order to re-sell in the future at a better price. She is requesting a loan in order to buy a portion of rice field.
