Peit S., 27, is pictured here with her husband. They have two young children. Peit sells groceries in the Bati district of Takeo province. On average, she typically makes USD $2.50 of profit every day. Her husband earns about USD $5 a day by working as a driver. Currently, he purchases grocery items in bulk and transports them to the province market, but since this business make very little income, he has decided to change his truck into a tourist truck. He wants to transport passengers from place to place instead of delivering goods.
