11th farmer took his life –

his wife Chantana, 47, her husband complained about being heavily in debt after he could not get cash from the rice he pledged with the government.

She said her husband was a farmer leader who borrowed rice seedlings, fertilizers, pesticides from local financiers and shared with farmers in his group to begin planting with promise to pay them after the harvest and get money from the pledged rice.

But after the harvests, no farmers were paid for the rice they pledged, thus putting her husband in trouble for all things secured from financiers who kept asking him daily to repay.
