This is 44 year-old Fandy. She is married and has 3 children, aged 26, 24 and 20 years. In 1996, Fandy established her fish business. She began her business because she needed to have a source of income to help her take care of her family. Working 6 days a week and 8 hours a day, she earns about Le 900,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 in order to buy more fish to supply other traders. In the future, Fandy plans to be one of the leading fish agents who supplies other local women in her community. She thanks you for your support.
