Mok S. is 68 years old. She lives with her husband, pictured here, and has six children. Most of her children have married and moved out of the house. Mok farms together with her husband, and earns a total of around $1 a day. Mok would like to invest in a water pump system to irrigate their crops, and cut down of the expense of using their neighbor’s pump, which is extremely far from Mok’s farm. Mok would use this money to further her farm and support her family.
