Mrs. Phally P., who is a villager in Preay Totueng village in Kandal province, is 55 years old. She and her husband, Mr. Chhum Chory, are farmers who own a small piece of land to grow crops to sell in order to support their family. However, though this family tries to work hard, they cannot earn enough income because their field is far from an irrigation system, and they do not have enough money to support it. They would also like to start a new business.
Thus, in order to improve the family's living conditions, Mrs. Phally P. decided to seek a loan to buy a water machine, some piglets for breeding, and food for the pigs. She is the mother of two children who are attending the local public school. Her husband is on the right in the picture.
