Mrs. Praing H. is a villager in Tang Roleang village in Kampong Cham province. She is a farmer who owns 1.5-hectar of land to cultivate rice. In this plantation, she faces a big obstacle, because her field is far from an irrigation system, which is of course bad for her crops. Thus, she decided to request for a loan to buy a pump machine to water the field.

Her husband, Mr. Souy Kin, is a fisherman. Mrs. Praing H. is 35 years old and the mother of four children. Three are attending the local school, and the youngest is too young to work or study. Her husband is presented on the left of the photo.
