Mrs. Yeng S. and her husband, Mr. Thorn Tong, are farmers in Chek Village in Kandal Province. They have two children who attend school. Last year, Mrs. Yeng S. faced a problem in the rainy season because water flooded her plantation and damaged her crops. Because of this, Mrs. Yeng S. does not have enough money to grow a rice crop this year. That is why she is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and seeds to grow rice.
