Mrs. Srey Hong K. is a villager in Prey Takap village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where she cultivates rice to earn her living. Her husband, Mr. Ol Eit, is a construction worker who gets a small salary. Even though they have different businesses, they still cannot support their family well. Thus, Mrs. Srey Hong K. decided to ask for a loan to buy a cow for breeding. She hopes to increase their income and improve her living conditions with this loan after she sells her cow. She is 21 years old and the mother of a child who is too young to work or study because that child is two years old. Her husband is presented on the right of the photo.
