Mrs. Eit S. is a villager in Takol village in Kampong Chhnang province. She owns one hectare to cultivate rice to earn a living. Her husband, Mr. Prak Phan, helps her on the plantation. Although they try to work hard, they still earn little revenue from the rice to support the family. Also, they live in an old house. In order to improve these conditions, Mrs. Eit S. decided to ask for a loan to use with her savings to build a new house for her family. Mrs. Eit S. is 55 years old and the mother of three children who are all working as construction workers.
