Yean, 21, is a homemaker. She stays at home to care for her two children and keeps to a daily routine as well. Her husband provides for the family’s expenses with his income as a domestic fisherman along a river in Siem Reap Province. Recently, her husband hasn't been able to catch as many fish as before because a few of his fishing tools are broken. Therefore, Yean is applying for a loan for her husband so he can buy new fishing equipment to replace the old tools that are ruined.
