Mr. Phorng T. lives in the Krang Samroung Village in the Takeo Province. He is a chicken breeder. Aside from his breeding, he sells ice cream in the local village. Since his business is doing well, he wants to expand it; thus, he decided to ask for a loan to buy a motorbike to transport his ice cream to sell door-to-door. His wife, Mrs. Nget Saran, is a farmer who owns a plot of land to cultivate rice. Mr. Phorng T. is 30 years old and the father of two children who are too young to work or study. His wife is shown on the left of the photo.
