Mrs. Lieng S. is a villager in Peak Bang Aung village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer who owns a piece of land where she cultivates rice to earn her living. Her husband, Mr. Mut Kuch, is a construction worker. With their revenue, they cannot improve their living conditions. Thus, Mrs. Lieng S. decided to ask for a loan to buy two cows for breeding to start a new business. She hopes to increase their income and improve her living conditions after she sells her cows. She is 31 years old and the mother of two children who are too young to work or study because they are five and two years old. Her husband is presented on the right of the photo.
