Mrs. La L. is 44 years old and married with six children, one of whom is married. The family lives in Kork Thlork Leu commune in the Siem Reap Province. She has been growing rice since 1980 and typically earns around 5,000 Riel (US $1.25) per day. Because growing rice is the main source of income in La's family, she wants to try to develop and increase her rice yield by purchasing another plot of farmland and improving farming techniques by using fertilizer and paying for labor. She faces the obstacle of lacking capital, and she is requesting a loan to achieve her plan.
