Mrs. Sokhom P. was born in 1957 and now lives in Prey Kla Tboung village in Takeo Province. She is a pig breeder.

Her husband, Mr. Nuo Choub, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. On his plantation, he faces some problems because his field is infertile soil and has a lot of pests, which hurt his crop. He does not have enough money to hire laborers to support his field.

In order to solve these problems, Mrs. Sokhom P. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide and hire laborers to plant seedlings and harvest rice. She hopes to increase the family's income and improve her life with this loan.

She is 51 years old and the mother of five children, three of whom are employed in a garment factory, while the other two children are attending the local school. Her husband is on the left of the photo.
