Mrs. Yeng C. is a villager in the Bantey Thmor Village in the Kampong Cham Province. She is a farmer who owns a piece of land to cultivate rice. She faces a problem with the plantation because she usually pays too much money to hire a laborer with two oxen to plow the fields. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy two oxen for plowing in the hopes of reducing her expenses. Her husband, Mr. Ren Doeun, is a village chief and he also helps with the farming. Mrs. Yeng C. is 54 years old and the mother of a construction worker. Her husband is presented with her in the picture.
