The Pen family lives in Cambodia. Thoeurm is 57 years old and works as a rice farmer. She lives with her daughter and a granddaughter in a 1-bedroom house. They own the house and have been living here for 9 years. The next thing they plan on buying is materials to build a fence. Their dream is to own a bigger house someday.

The Pen family lives in Cambodia. Thoeurm is 57 years old and works as a farmer. Her daughter Chautty is 35 years old and they live with Chautty’s daughter Rlyka, 12 years old, who is a student. Together the mother and daughter work for 147 hours/week. The Pen family lives in a single-room home that they own. They've been living there for the past 9 years. They also own some land. The house has electricity but it fails several times a week. The toilet is outside the house but not shared with other households. About 60% of the family income is spent on buying food. In addition to their main job, the family spends an extra 14 hours a week doing housework and 7 hours a week collecting water and wood, which is used as fuel for cooking. The Pen family has managed to save a little money. They’ve never been on a vacation. The next thing they plan to spend money on is materials to build a fence. They hope that one day they will be able to fulfil their dream of buying a big house.
