Sles's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase nets and to repair fishing materials for his fishing business.
Mr. Sles S., 57 (pictured with his wife) and his wife, Mrs. Phatimas Sos, 52, were married in 1970 and have 10 children: 7 sons and 3 daughters. Six of their children are married and live outside the family home, and the other two are in school. The family lives along National Road Number Six about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. Sles and his wife are fishermen. They fish from the Mekong river and sell to wholesalers, who then take them to sell in other markets. But sometimes their fishing materials break, which upsets their business. So Sles is requesting his first loan in the amount of $500 in order to purchase nets and to repair his fishing materials. With this loan, the couple will be able to continue their business.
