As everyone knows, fish is the main vital fresh food for everybody, in particular families who depend on fishing and fish-selling. Mr. Meas, one among those people, currently depends on selling fish at the local busy market. He and his wife sell fish that they buy from their wholesale supplier. They are humble parents who have been blessed with six children. One has already married and five are single, of which one works as a domestic construction worker in the Siem Reap Province. Mr. Meas has requested a loan to purchase more fresh fish for selling. Mr. Meas hopes he can increase his net income by using a Kiva loan as an advance.
