Van Norn
Mrs. Van Norn Y. and her family are villagers in Trapeang Khlout village in Takeo province. She is 34 years old. She is a Khmer cheese seller and her husband, Mr. Sovanaret Ouy, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice, both of whom are supporting their family living. This family has some problem because Mrs. Van Norn Y. must sell Khmer cheese far from her local village but she did not have a motorbike for transportation to support it moreover she has a little money to buy a new motorbike. Thus, Mrs. Van Norn Y. decided to ask for a loan to buy a new motorbike for selling Khmer cheese and rest of the loan she would like to buy more Khmer cheese for re-selling. This couple has four children, one of whom is enrolled in local public school, while the others are too young to study or work. Her husband is on the right in the photo.
