Mrs. Thien T. lives in Bram Bei Mum village in Takeo province. She and her husband, Mr. Em Phat, are farmers who own a plot of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. In this plantation, they earn not much income to support their family. Thus, Mrs. Thien T. decided to ask for a loan to add her savings to buy a motorbike for her husband, to be motorbike taxi driver. She hopes to increase income and improve her family living with this loan. She is 41 years old and the mother of five children, two of whom are construction workers while the others are attending the local school. Her husband is shown on the right of photo.
