Yep is 30 years old and a good mother of a lovely child living in the Batey district of Kompong Cham province. She is a local farmer who commonly grows rice alongside her husband (who also appeared in the photo). She is extremely competent and industrious in her business and she also devotes her spare time to raise a herd of ducks at home.
With the requested amount, she will use it to purchase feed for her ducks. She hopes that she’ll be able to make a good income from her business when her ducks become big enough for sale. Yep will save a part of her income to expand her future business, she said.
