Srem's story

Srem is 45 years old and is married with five children. She lives with her family in the area of Kaoh Thum district, Kandal province. Srem is selling fish at the local market and her husband is a fisherman working hard at the river. Sometimes her husband is faced with a storm when fishing but he has to deal with the poor weather conditions in order to catch fish to sell and earn additional income to support the family's living needs.

Her husband has other duties related to fishing such as steering vessels and operating navigational instruments. He also puts fishing equipment into the water and anchors or tows equipment according to the fishing method used, fishing gear, and other on-board equipment. He also performs minor repairs, removes catches from fishing equipment and measures them to ensure compliance with legal size. He pulls and guides nets, and collects fish for her to sell at the market.

Due to a shortage of money, she is asking for a loan to buy construction supplies to renovation her old home. She hopes that, through the help of the loan, she can provide everyone in her family with a suitable place to live and comfortable living conditions. She will have enough funds to purchase construction supplies such as bricks, cement, zinc and other necessary things and pay for labors costs. She believes that through her hard work and perseverance she will be able to attain a better standard of living someday.
