Chhin S. is 42 years of age. Since 1999, she has worked hard farming vegetables in her home province of Kampong Cham. Her farm only earns her US$3 per day of profit. En Neum, her husband, is the primary breadwinner, earning US$6 per day selling rubber to local factories. They support their only child, who is a student, as well as themselves through these lines of work. With access to enough money, Chhin S. wants to buy a large stock of rubber for her husband to sell in bulk to nearby factories. This will give their family a much needed financial boost.
