Sanh, 31, is married and lives with his wife and two school-age children in Kampong Chhnang province. He works for a private company as a car driver, so his daily duty is to transport items from one place to another as required by the employer. He is the main income provider for his family. On the other hand, his spouse helps earn income by cultivating potatoes on their own farm.
With the amount he requested through HKL, he will pay for laborers to tidy up his land for planting potatoes. He will use the remainder, to buy farming supplies for this process.
