Sreythy has four siblings, one sister and three brothers, and she is third child in family. Her father is a farmer who own about a half of one hectare of farmland and the yield is about 800kg of rice per year because they don’t have enough money to buy fertilizer and their farm is in rain-fed area. Her mother is a mango harvester who earns about $150 per month but this income is not regular because it is according to mango seasons. While her parents are busy to work outside, Sreythy has to help to do housework. Those works has kept her away from school frequently.
