Mrs. Yen K. was born in 1947 and she now lives in Trapaing Chrey village in Kandal Province. She and her husband, Mr. By Yei, are farmers who own 1 hectare where they cultivate rice to earn a living. Unfortunately, they do not have enough money to buy seed rice to support their field. Additionally, their field is infertile and is badly affecting their field. In order to deal this problem, Mrs. Yen K. decided to request a loan to buy seed rice and fertilizer to make her crop more productive. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with this loan. She is a mother of two children who are employed in a garment factory. Her husband is presented on the right of the photo.
