Mr. Thul N. is married to Mrs. Chem Torn. They have a child who is attending the local public school. This family has three members who live in Trapeang Roka village in Takeo province. Mr. Thul N. is the village chief and his wife is a farmer who owns two hectares of land to grow vegetables and rice to sell to support her family. They have some problems because their field is far from an irrigation system and they do not have enough money to support the field. Thus, Mr. Thul N. decided to seek a loan to dig a well to produce rice and vegetables. With the rest of the loan, he would like to buy a water machine. Mr. Thul N. is busy with his work, so his wife came to take the loan instead of him.
