Ley’s husband is a motor taxi driver. She used to be a farmer, but because she earned so little, she changed her work. Since 2001 she has wrapped sticky-rice cakes to sell at the market.
Two of Ley’s children are employed in a garment factory. Since the factory is far from home, she is requesting a loan of 1200 USD to purchase a motorbike for them to commute to work.
In the future, Ley plans to run a poultry farm to generate more income to support the family, build a kitchen and support her children in their studies until they both earn Bachelor’s degrees.
