Mrs. Ton K. is a farmer in Sya Village in Kampong Speu Province. She cultivates her land twice a year on her plantation. During the rainy season, she cultivates rice. She grows other crops during dry season. Her husband, Mr. Rim Phan, collects palm juice to process into palm sugar. He also breeds pigs. Additionally he helps his wife on the rice field when he has free time.

Mrs. Ton K. now faces a small problem because she does not have enough money to buy a new cow to help the old cow that now plows her field. Thus, she has asked for a loan for this purpose.

Mrs. Ton K. is 48 years old and the mother of four children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others are too young to work or study. Previously, Mrs. Ton K. obtained a loan from AMK to buy piglets for breeding. She fully paid back the loan. Last year, her husband got sick and Mrs. Ton K. had unforeseen expenses to take care of him. This is the reason Mrs. Ton K. does not have enough money to buy a cow to plow her field. Mrs. Ton K. and her husband are shown in the picture.
