Huy, born in 1983, is a mother of two children who are attending public schoO.. She is a farm laborer and a farmer who owns a 1.7-hectare plot of land where she grows rice. Some of the rice yield is to sell and the rest is used by her family.
Because her field has infertile soil, Huy is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. With the rest of the loan she is going to hire farming laborers to plow her field. Her husband, Men, is a water seller and a fisherman and is in the photo with her.
