Mrs. Thach L., age 46, lives in Prambei Mom village in Takeo province. She and her husband, Mr. Ron Prak, are farmers who own a plot of land to cultivate rice for a living. Aside from farming, Mrs. Thach L. is also a Khmer noodle vendor, which allows her to earn a small additional income to help support her family.
In order to make it easier for her to transport Khmer noodles door-to-door, Mrs. Thach L. has decided to ask for a loan in order to purchase a motorcycle for transport.
This couple has five children: two are seamstresses in the garment factory and the younger three are students in the local school.
