Mrs. Moeun R. lives in Saen Bon village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns three hectare fields (7.5 acres) on which she cultivates rice. Her husband, Mr. Chuon Von, is a construction worker who can make a small income to support the family.
Even thought they try to work hard, they still earn less income than is needed to support their household. Thus, Mrs. Moeun R. decided to ask for a loan to buy one more cow for her cattle-breeding business.
Mrs. Moeun R. is the mother of six children, three of whom are working in a garment factory while another is a construction worker and the other two are attending the local school. Her husband is shown on the left in the photo.
