Mrs. Vat T. lives in Prambei Mom village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land on which she cultivates rice for a living. Her husband, Mr. Touch Proeun, is a recyclables collector who collects empty bottles, cans and so on to resell for an income. Although they try to work hard, they still earn insufficient income to support their family and better their standard of living.
Now Mrs. Vat T. is applying a loan to buy a cow for breeding. This couple has four children; two are employed in a garment factory while the other two are attending the local school. Her husband is shown on the left of the photo.
