Hun C. is 35 years old. She lives with her old mother and her niece in the Battambang province. She sells grocery products and grows corn to help support her family. She typically makes $22 a day. For the last three years, her farming of corn has not done well because of the weather changes. Fortunately, her grocery business has been successful.
