Mrs. Meas C. was born in 1949 and lives in Trapeang Krasang Village in Takeo Province. She and her husband, Mr. Ngaet Pon, have a piece of land on which they plan to cultivate rice. They have five children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory while another is a construction worker. The remaining three attend the local school. Although Mrs. Meas C.’s family members have different businesses, they still don't earn enough in total to afford building another room in their house. Thus, Mrs. Meas C. is requesting a loan to buy timber to add another room. Her husband is on the left in the photo.
