Mr. Heang P. was born in 1954 and he now lives in Srae Ampil village in Kandal province, Cambodia. He and his wife, Mrs. Thy Mary, are farmers who own a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn for a living. Since their field is far from an irrigation system, Mr. Heang P. decided to ask for a loan to buy a pump to water his field and fertilizer to make his crop more productive. Mr. Heang P. has four children, one of whom is a laborer while the others three attend the local school.
