Mr. Chy C. is a villager in Taok Ma village in Kandal province and he is 40 years old. He and his wife, Mrs. Kha Sok, are farmers who rent a small piece of land to cultivate rice to support their family. Although they try to work hard, they can't earn enough income. So to improve their family's living conditions, they want to start a new business but they do not have enough money. Thus, Mr. Chy C. is applying for a loan to buy two cows for breeding. He is a father of six children. Two of the children are seamstresses in a garment factory, three of the children are attending the local public school, and one is too young to work or study. His wife appears in the photo with him.
