Mrs. Kruoch V. is a farmer in Kampong Chrey Village in Takeo Province. In her plantation, she now faces a problem because she does not have enough money to hire a laborer to work in the field. Therefore, Mrs. Kruoch V. decided to ask for a loan for this purpose and she would use the rest of the money to buy fertilizer in order to produce a better crop. Her husband, Mr. Thou Peat, owns a small store where he sells fruit in the local village. Mrs. Kruoch V. is 25 years old and the mother of a child who is enrolled in the local school. Her husband is on the right in the photo.
