Chhing Hor was born in a poor family and she has gotten four siblings including her. She is the second born in the family. They have owned one hectare of farmland which produced 45 sacks of rice’s output per year. Chhing Hor pronouncedly confirmed that amount 25 sacks of the 45 sacks of rice were sold out to the merchantmen because her parents needed some profit to reserve for daily food, ailment’s treatment and also paid back to shop owner for the cost of rice’s fertilizers.

Even though, Chhing Hor said that the income which her parents earned from rice’s output wasn’t sufficiently covered for her stationery supplies and school uniforms. Therefore, she sometimes asked permission from school for a few days in order to work as a cashew seeds’ collector of neighbors’ farms due to get little income to pay for her schooling.
