Mrs. Chuk V., born in 1954, sells groceries in her local village, earning a small income to support her family. Additionally, she sells fruit and, as sales are doing well, she wants to expand this business. For this reason, she has requested a loan to buy more fruit for resale.
Her husband, Mr. Chea, is a farmer who owns a plot of land which he uses to grow vegetables for a living. He also helps his wife with her business. The couple have six children: two are laborers and the others are students who also help in their parents' businesses. Mrs. V. appears in this photo with her husband.
