Chanthou's story

Chanthou C., 26, lives with her widowed mother and three younger sisters. She works hard at her farming job, which is the family's main source of income. Her mother, Mrs. Lang Chin, 60, makes Khmer cake to sell as another source of income. Chanthou lives with her family in Snam Preah Commune, Pursat Province. Because her farmland is infertile, she needs to use fertilizer to improve the rice yield. As another source income, she wants to raise pigs. But Chanthou lacks the money to buy the fertilizer and the pigs. Hence, she is asking for a loan to carry out her plan. Chanthou's mother is pictured because Chanthou was not available.
