Khon's story

Khon is 35 years old and married. She is a citizen from a rural area located in the Moung Russey district, where farming is a common way to earn a living. She has five children, three of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

She and her husband have struggled to support the family by farming rice and selling ice cream. She has been in the business for 10 years, and business currently earns her approximately 35,000 KHR per day.
