Om Nang has been living with HIV for at least eight years. Nonetheless, she is a successful, well-respected member of her community, a village called Thmor Sor in Koh Kong Province, Cambodia. Thmor Sor can be difficult to access, and many of the homes are built on stilts above muddy waters. However, its seaside location allows for a plethora of business opportunities; and with assistance from RACHA, Om Nang has succeeded in becoming a successful dried shrimp seller, despite the fact that she is living with HIV.
