Nary belongs to a peasant family. The main income of her family is from growing rice. Her father used to migrate to Thailand to work as construction worker, but came back home after 3 months. At the moment, beside growing rice, he is hired to build houses for people in his village. The income earned is too little for daily food and children schooling.
