Mrs. Moeurn U. is 30-year-old widow with no children. She is a farmer in Kraing Sromor Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Aside from farming, she sells desserts in the local market to supplement her income. On her farm, Mrs. Moeurn U. faces a small problem because she does not have the oxen to plow the rice fields for cultivation, so she needs to hire a labourer with oxen to plow her field. Unfortunately, Mrs. Moeurn U. does not have enough money to do this. Thus, she is seeking a loan to help her get her fields cultivated.
