Mrs. Praing N. is a villager in Preak Konlong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She sells rice soup and her husband, Mr. Hak Ngin, is a farmer. They have five children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others are attending school. Mr. Hak Ngin does not have an easy way to water his crop so Mrs. Praing N. requests a loan to buy a water pump to water the crop. Her husband is on the right of the photo.
