Mrs. Sokung V. is a villager in Kaung Kang Ty Muoy village in Kampong Cham province. She and her husband, Mr. Soam Huol, are farmers who own a plot of land to cultivate both rice and vegetables. On this plantation they face an obstacle because they do not have enough money to hire laborers to work on the field. In order to solve this problem, Mrs. Sokung V. decided to ask for a loan to hire them for this purpose. She is 30 years old and the mother of four children, three of whom are attending the local school while the youngest one is too young to work or study. Her husband is presented on the left of the photo.
