Mrs. Sek S. is a farmer in Peam Prochum Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She is 49 years old and the mother of two children, both of whom are attending the local school. In her plantation, she now faces a small problem because her field is infertile, thus affecting her crop growth. To solve this problem, she has decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer to improve her field conditions. Her husband, Mr. Chan Song, is a palm juice collector who gathers palms to process into sugar and wine. Aside from this business, he is also a pig breeder. Previously, Mrs. Sek S. had obtained a loan from AMK to buy piglets for her husband's business. Her husband is shown on the right of the photo.
