Huth is 39 years old, married, and has five grown-up children. Only her last-born child is living with her in a small house in Baray district, while the other four are already settled for marriage and lives independently around Kompong Tom province. Huth has been a fish and lotus fruit seller since 2000. Her husband is the main supplier in this business, and two of her children serve as her motivation in pursuing her fish retail business.
Huth wants to expand her business, but unfortunately she suffers from financial constraints. This is why she decided to obtain a loan of USD 1000 to purchase a motorcycle which will help her in the business. Also, her children can use it for a ride through the community to buy and resell fish for more income. She would appreciate it if she could get the loan from lenders.
