The Daily Life of a Woman
Phin Romduol

My elder sister is a factory worker. She is 35 years old. She has five children. Her eldest daughter is 20 years old and is a factory worker. Her second daughter is 18 and is disabled. Her son is 17 and is a construction worker. Her third daughter is 14 and is a student. The youngest son is three months old and was born without a plan. Now she doesn’t earn any income since she asked to suspend her work for four months for maternity leave. Her situation is difficult. The earned amount is lower than the expenses, i.e. rent, food, clothes etc. She also has to pay for a nanny. As for her husband, he is a construction worker. He works hard and tries to save money, hoping for a better life.
