Pheun S. is 40 years old and has been selling a few fresh fish in the busy local market for more than ten years. She and her husband buy fish from their wholesale supplier and from fishermen in the rural areas at a reasonable price, and then they hurry up to bring their fresh fish to sell.
They are running their business well because they have skills in public relations which they use with their customers. The family typically generates a revenue of about $10.80 each day for covering the family’s expenses. The humble couple has four children who are enrolled in school.
In order to earn more profit, Pheun S. is applying for a loan to purchase additional fish in large amounts for resale.
