Mr. Yon Y. is 48 years old and he lives in Rolus village in Takeo province. He is a farmer who owns a piece of land to cultivate rice and earn more income. His wife, Mrs. Chek Douch, is a duck breeder. Since her business is doing well, she wants to expand it but she does not have enough money. In order to solve this problem, Mr. Yon Y. decided to ask for a loan to buy more ducks for his wife’s business to earn more income to support his family. He has six children, three of whom stay at home to do housework and help the parents with their work while the others are attending the local school. His wife is shown on the left of the photo.
