Mrs. Vanna S. is a villager in Tuol Kandal Village, Kandal Province. She does not have enough money to buy fertilizers to support her field; consequently, she has decided to ask for a loan. She will use most of the money to buy fertilizer; the remainder will be used to find a way of irrigating her crops. Her husband, Mr. Meim Lun, is a fisherman and helps his wife. Mrs. Vanna S. has six children, one of whom works in a garment factory. Two others are farmers; two others are attending the local school. Finally, the youngest one, a five year old, stays home because he is too young to work or study.
