Mr. Leng T. lives in Nikon Leu Village in Kampong Cham Province. He and his wife, Mrs. Yin Heng, are farmers who cultivate both rice and vegetables. They own a 0.7 hectare rice field and three hectares for vegetable farming. Since these fields are too large for them to cultivate alone, Mr. Leng T. decided to ask for a loan to hire laborers to work in those fields. He would use the rest of the loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides to make his crop more productive. Mr. Leng T. is 40 years old and the father of four children: one is a laborer; two attend school; and the youngest child is four months old. His wife and daughter are shown with Mr. Leng T..
