Mr. Nat N. is living in Choeng Prey village in Kandal province and he is 44 years old. He is a duck breeder who earns some money from selling duck eggs to support his family. His problem is that his ducks are too small to sell and he does not have enough money to buy more feed. So to solve this condition, Mr. Nat N. is applying for a loan to buy duck food and a cow for breeding to start a new business. His wife, Mrs. Orieng Poum, is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice for her family. Through this activity, they support six children. One of the children is a seamstress in a garment factory and the others are attending the local public school. His wife is in the photo with him.
