Mrs. Leng K. lives in Dork Por village in Takeo province. She and her husband, Mr. Chhorn Touch, are farmers who own a piece of land to cultivate rice and vegetables to earn a living. On the farm, they face some problems with insufficient rice seeds and infertile soil. In order to solve these problems, Mrs. Leng K. decided to ask for a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer. In addition, she would use the rest of the loan to buy a pump to water the field to make her crop more productive. She is 43 years old and the mother of four children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others attend the local school. Her husband is pictured with her in the photo.
