Mrs. Kimly N. was born in 1979 and she now lives in the Kor Village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land that she uses to cultivate rice to earn a living. In this plantation, she now faces a small problem because her field is infertile. This affects her crops very negatively.
In order to deal with this problem, she has decided to ask for a loan that she can use to buy fertilizers to make her crops more productive. Her husband, Mr. Khat Ret, is a laborer who makes a small income to support the household. Mrs. Kimly N. has three children, two of whom are attending the local school while the youngest one is too young to work or study as she is only one year old. Her husband is also pictured here with her.
