Mrs. Chantha K. is a fish seller in Preak Konlong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Her husband, Mr. Sam Ol Teav, is a teacher who receives only a small salary to support his family. They have five children, three of whom are attending school while the others are too young to work or study. Their neighbor wants to sell a piece of land at a reasonable price so Mrs. Chantha Coub and her husband want to buy it in order to resell later at a better price. Unfortunately, they do not have enough money so Mrs. Chantha Coub requests a loan for this purpose. Her husband is on the left of the photo.
