Pinky is married and the mother of a 15-year-old child. She and her husband earn a living by fishing -- her husband goes to sea in their boat, and she sells the fish he catches in a local market. They work hard to meet their family's needs and pay their child's school fees. She is applying for a loan to buy nets, crab traps and other fishing supplies. She hopes to be able to keep her child in school through college.
