Vath K. was born 1969 on her homeland located in Phnom Penh, where she established her own small family. Vath K. was married, but divorced her husband since her son was very young. To feed her family, she has built a small kiosk where she provides a tailoring service to her nearby neighbors who need her to sew their clothes. She sews both modern women clothe and men clothe and has been started in this sector for nine years. To help meet with the family’s living standard, her son works in construction. Vath K. currently lives with her older widowed mother who helps her in holding entire housework. The part of sewing material has been exhausted; Vath K. has asked for a loan to order more cloths to supply her good business.
