Mrs. Socheata U. is a villager in Koh Ras Leu Village in Kandal Province. She is a teacher who earns a small income to support the family.
Her husband, Mr. Hut Sothun, is a lottery seller. They have three children who are all attending the local school.
Although Mrs. Socheata U. and her husband have different businesses, they still cannot afford to build a new house, so Mrs. Socheata U. decided to ask for a loan to add to her savings in order to build a new house for her household.
Her husband is on the left of the photo.
