Chin S., age 48, is a mother of three children and lives with her husband in Phnom Penh. Since 2003 she has worked planting vegetables and selling them to the market. On average, she makes $3 per day. Her husband, S. Manch, is a farmer, too. One of their children is a garment worker and receives $75 each a month.
