Mrs. Sim P. is a villager in Samraong Village in Kampong Cham Province. She owns 2 hectares to cultivate rice to earn a living. On this plantation she now faces an obstacle because her field is infertile, which badly affects her crop. To deal with this problem, Mrs. Sim P. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers to support the field and make her crop more productive. Her husband, Mr. Mon Vuth, assists his wife with the agriculture. Mrs. Sim P. is 36 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom is a farmer, while the youngest one is attending the local school. Her husband is presented on the right of the photo.
