Khul is 46 years old and operates a fish selling business from a rented booth in a local market in the Baray District of the Kompong Tom Province. She sells fresh fish caught by her husband. Her husband goes fishing along Tonle Sap River every single day. They support one another in this business in order to raise their children. Two of thier children are married; the remaining one is single and attending school.
Currently Khul would like to borrow her second loan in the amount of 2,000,000 KHR in order to purchase a fishing boat and fishing nets. These items will enable her husband to catch fish efficiently. With the loan's assistance, she hopes that she is able to solve her financial difficulties and secure a good standard of living.
