Mrs. Yem N. lives in Chek Village in Kandal Province. She and her husband, Mr. Moeurn Meth, are farmers who own a 1.3 hectare field which they cultivate to earn their living. On their plantation, they now have a problem because the soil is infertile. In order to deal with this situation, Mrs. Yem N. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer to improve her field and she will use the rest of the loan to buy fuel for her pump to water her crop. Mrs. Yem N. is 44 years old and the mother of two children who are both employed in a garment factory.
