The family owns one hectare of farmland in which they can earn up to $300 a year in rice product. As this is not enough to support the family’s needs, Srey Roth’s father commonly has to work for other jobs like carry the sack of cement at the vender shop. He can earn $5 or $6 a day. Not the above income are enough to support the family and their children’s study needs.
