Mr. Tum M. is a villager in Prey Choeur Teal village in Takeo province. He and his wife, Mrs. Neang Vuth, are farmers who own a plot of land to cultivate rice to earn for living. In this plantation, they can earn less income to support their household. Thus, Mr. Tum M. decided to ask for a loan to buy a motorbike to be motorbike taxi driver. He is 46 years old and the father of four children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the others are enrolled in the local school. His wife is presented on the left of the photo.
