Mr. Saroeurn P. and his wife are farmers in Svay Pok Village in Kampong Speu Province. They have five children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory, while three others are attending school. The youngest one is too young to work or study. Mr. Saroeurn P. does not have enough cows to plow his field, thus, therefore he has decided to ask for a loan to purchase more cows. On his plantation, Mr. Saroeurn P. has had to deal with a drought in the past few years that has reduced his crop size. Previously, Mr. Saroeurn P. obtained a loan to buy zinc to cover his house roof. His wife is on the right of the photo.
