Sim, age 47, is a weaver. She has been married to her husband Sarin, age 48, since 1996. They have one young daughter. The family lives in a suburb of Phnom Penh.

Sim's husband supports the family by farming crops and raising cows at home. The irrigation pipe used on his farmland is broken and requires replacement, so Sim is applying for a loan in the amount of $200 in order to buy a new one.

With the new pipe, Sarin will be able to spray his farm.
