Mrs. Prak N. owns a small grocery store in the local market which is located in Kampong Chrey Village in Takeo Province. Aside from this business, she is a farmer who faces an obstacle because the soil in her field is infertile. To solve this problem, Mrs. Prak N. decided to ask for a loan to purchase fertilizer. Her husband, Mr. Cheang Mok, is a construction worker who earns $2.50 per day, a very small income to support his household. Mrs. Prak N. is 46 years old and the mother of a child who helps her in both the plantation and the grocery business. Her husband is on the left in the photo.
