Mrs. Sokunthea S. is a villager in the Thkouv Village in the Takeo Province. She is 29 years old and the mother of two children who are too young to work or study. She is a grocer who owns a small grocery store. Aside from this business, she is a pig breeder as well. Her husband, Mr. Ly Thoeurn, is a motor-taxi driver. Additionally, he is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice. In this plantation, he has a problem because his field is too far from the irrigation system; thus, Mrs. Sokunthea S. decided to request a loan to buy a pump machine in order to allow water to support the field, making her crops more productive. Her husband is shown with her in the picture.
