Mrs. Phalla H., 35, and her husband, Mr. Poeun Dong, 39, live in a small village off of National Road No. 2, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1991 and have one son and three daughters. Two of their children attend school and the other two are still young.

Phalla has been a garment factory worker for one year. Mr. Poeun Daung has been a mason for over twenty years, a skill he learned from his brother. He works in and around his village.
