Mr. Sim P. (in the photo), 53, and his wife, Mrs. Nai Srey, 51, live on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They married in 1980 and have three children--one son and two daughters. All of them are married; two live separately and one lives in the family home.

Sim and his wife sell fish and vegetables. In addition, they also grow mushrooms at home. Sim is applying for a loan of US$ 1,200 to expand his business by purchasing more fish and vegetables for resale. He will use part of the loan for growing mushrooms as well.
