Korn and her husband are farmers. She has nine children - four sons and five daughters. Seven of her children are married and live separately, and the other two still live with her and her husband. The family lives in a village about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

One of Korn’s sons is a motor taxi driver. He hopes to change his business from motor taxi driver to Tuk Tuk driver, because it (a three-wheeled motorcycle taxi) can carry more goods and people than a motor taxi. Hence, she has decided to apply for her first loan in the amount of $1,300 to purchase a Tuk Tuk for her son-in-law. She will also to use a part of the loan to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her farm.

In this photo, Korn is at her home. Although she may look old, she is still able and strong enough to continue to work to better the living situation for herself and her family.
