Mrs. Vin S. and her husband, Mr. Morn Kong, are subsistence farmers in Chhouk Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. They make only a small revenue, because their rice field is small. Mrs. Vin S. wants to expand her rice business. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan so that she can buy more land to grow rice. Mrs. Vin S. is 48 and the mother of five children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others two are enrolled in school.
