Mr. Ariphin K., twenty-eight, and his wife, Mrs. Sakirors Man, twenty-nine, were married in 1999 and have one young daughter, who is in primary school. The family lives along National Road Number Six about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Ariphin has been a fisherman for over fifteen years. He fishes from the lake and river near his house. Sakirors sells fish her husband catches at Prek Anhchanh market. His fishing business is Ariphin's main source of income for supporting his family, so he is applying for a loan of $1,000 to purchase a boat for his fishing business.
