Mrs. Tum K. is a villager in Kor Chenleng village in Takeo Province. She is a hen breeder. Her husband, Mr. Hun Hoem, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where he cultivates rice to earn his living. Since Mrs. Tum K.’s business is going well, she wants to expand; unfortunately, she does not have enough money to buy hens and hen food. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan for this purpose and she would use the rest of the loan to buy fertilizers to support her husband's field to make his crop more productive. She is 32 years old and the mother of two children who are attending the local school. Her husband is on the right of the photo.
