Kong's story

Mrs. Kong P., 47 years old, is a humble villager living in the capital, Phnom Penh, in the middle of Cambodia. She was married but divorced her husband when her four kids (two sons and two daughters) were very young. All of her children are now teenagers who are no longer in school and work at different occupations.

To earn a living, Kong P. sells many kinds of vegetables, which she either buys in bulk from her supplier or grows them. She doesn’t have her own vehicle, so Kong P. always has to hire a taxi to transport vegetables from her farm supplier to the market. Kong P. is taking her first loan to buy a new motorcycle that she can use to pick up vegetables or to travel anywhere else without hiring taxis. Mrs. Kong P. was not available when the photo taken, so her son is pictured instead.
