Mr. Mean Y. was born in 1987 and he now lives in Preak Ta Ong Ti Pie village in Kandal Province. He owns a small cart with a horse in order to transport soil to sell door-to-door. His wife, Mrs. Sen Chantrea, is a mat maker in the local village. They live separately, with their parents, because they do not have enough money to build a new house. In order to live independently, Mr. Mean Y. works hard and now asks for a loan to start a horse breeding business. He hopes to increase his income and improve his living conditions and live separately from his parents soon. His wife is on the left of the photo.
