Mrs. Roeung C. is a villager in Prothorng Village in Takeo Province. She is 26 years old and the mother of a three year old child who is too young for school. She is a farmer who can make a little revenue from rice because she owns a small field. Her husband, Mr. Mao Kan, is a construction worker who can make $4 a day. He is shown on the left in the picture.

Even though Mrs. C. and her husband each have businesses, they still cannot afford to build a new house. Thus, Mrs. C. decided to ask for a loan to buy timbers to build a new house to replace the old one.
