Mrs. Yom S. lives in Tonle village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a piece of land to cultivate rice. Aside from this plantation, she and her husband, Mr. Meb Kang, are sellers. Since this business is going well, they want to sell door-to-door. Thus, Mrs. Yom S. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings to buy a motorbike to sell her products. She is 43 years old and the mother of five children, one of whom is a hard-working man while the others are enrolled in the local school. She and her husband are shown in the picture.
