V annith Uy is the owner of what translates from Khmer as a "mobile nail salon", although the word salon is a stretch. Three years ago, when she arrived from the countryside, Uy had a different plan. She wanted to open a hair and beauty salon on proper premises in the Cambodian capital. The man was a police general who frequented the beer garden where Uy worked as a kitchen help, she says. He bought Chamnan for six days and nights. She was allowed to call her mother once a day. Uy received cash payment in full, but her planned salon never materialised. The money that had represented a life-changing sum — equivalent to around five years' salary in her home village in Kandal province — soon trickled away.
