Mr. Vuy B., age 27, and his wife, Mrs. Sarin Soth, age 29, live in a small village along National Road Number five about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 2007 and have a newborn child.

Vuy has been a fisherman since he was married. He fishes from the lake nearby his village and his wife sells the fish at Prek Phnao market. He doesn’t have all the supplies to efficiently operate the fishing business, so he is requesting his first loan of $700 to purchase a boat engine and fishing nets.
