Their oldest daughter is in the makeup business and also weaves with her parents, while the other three children are in local school.

Mrs. Phally and her husband have been silk weavers and in the makeup business for over 20 years. Phally sells her silk products to the middleman in the village, who then resells them in Phnom Penh. Her makeup business is in demand for wedding ceremonies in the village and nearby communities.
