Mrs. Sam S. is a farmer in the Kampong Chrey Village in Takeo Province. In her plantation, she now faces a small problem because her plantation field has infertile soil. So she decided to ask for a loan to purchase fertilizer to make her field more productive. In addition to farming, she owns a small grocery store in the local village. Her husband, Mr. Hor Khloeun, is a construction worker who makes $2.50 per day, a very small income to support his family. Mrs. Sam S. is 27 years old and the mother of three children, two of whom attend the local school while the youngest one is too young for school. Her husband is on the right in the photo.
