Mrs. Hak P. is a farmer in Chek village in Kandal province. In her plantation, she now faces an obstacle because her field is infertile which has a bad effect on her crop so she decided to ask for a loan to buy more fertilizer to make her crop more productive. She plans to use the rest of the loan to buy fuel for a pump and pesticide to kill insects. Her husband, Mr. Samrith Lonh, helps her in the plantation. Mrs. Hak P. is 55 years old and the mother of three children who are all working in a garment factory.
