Mr Hun Loeuth and Ms Sean Srey Rath
20 Years Old & 18 Years Old
District: Chnoul Meanchey
Province: Bantheay Meanchey
Training: TV/Radio Repairs + Tailoring
Hun Loeuth is the younger brother of another Lom Orng graduate student, Mr Loeuth. Like his brother, he had nothing to do or occupy his time with prior to being trained by Lom Orng. He now runs a successful repair business, earning 5000 Riel per day, with some repairs earning him 60,000 Riel each. Each family in his community has at least one radio, so there is plenty of work for him every week.
The most challenging part of his training was that the parts fro the radios and televisions are written in English not Khmer, so it took some time to learn the names of these parts. Once he overcame this issue, he enjoyed his training very much, and greatly appreciates the opportunity given to him.
Mr Loeuth is married to Rath, whom he met at the Lom Orng training centre. She is hoping to also contribute to their future, and have a profession to keep her busy.
These two were a lovely young couple. They were excited about their new future together, and were looking forward to a healthy, happy life together. It is stories like theirs that describe the importance of an organisation like Lom Orng in these remote areas. Their lives would have been incredibly difficult and trying without the support of Lom Orng.
