Mrs. Sokha K. is a villager in Damnak Roveang Village in Takeo Province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. Her husband, Mr. Seak Sok, is a motorbike taxi driver who faces a small problem because his motorbike is too old and he usually spends much money on petroleum to support his bike. Thus, Mrs. Sokha K. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy a new motorbike for her husband's business. She is 46 years old and the mother of a child who is employed in a garment factory. Her husband is presented on the right of the photo.
