Financial income: provide for your family | Elderly of the World
In Phnom Penh we were looking for elderly who are still working independently of their family. One of the people we met was Mr. Sok Than, a 61 year old cyclo driver in Phnom Penh. He told us: "I come to work in Phnom Penh almost 11 years already. Before I was a farmer.Because my rice field is so small, I cannot find enough money to pay for my family life, so I decided to work with cyclo in Phnom Penh city. My family is still living in the province, and I send them all the money I make here. I visit them once every 2-3 months. I earn between 7000 and 10.000 riel everyday with this work" (2 - 2,5 dollar).
