Oeun (in the photo), 58 years old, and her husband San, who is 65 years old, are rice farmers. They are old, but they are still strong enough to work. In addition, Oeun also makes On Sorm and sells it in her village when she is not at the farm. On Sorm is a typical Cambodian cake which is made of sticky rice with sweet or salty fillings and is steam-cooked.

Oeun hopes to expand her farmland; therefore she is applying for a loan in the amount of $1,000 to buy the neighboring land property.

Oeun and San have been married since 1975. They have three children - one son and two daughters. One is married and lives separately, another one is a garment worker and another one is a teacher. The family lives in a village approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
