A loan of $700 helped a member to purchase additional equipment for fishing activities.

Yim's Group's story

Mrs. Yim K., 57, has formed a loan group with the other four members. K. has been selected by the other members to be the leader.

Currently, she and her husband have jobs as local cultivators. In additionally, they are also fishing in and around Tunle Sap Lake which is an important place for fish to be found. The couple now lives with four children who are still single: two of them are employed working as massage staff in the hotel.

Recently, the family's investment is not going well because their equipment frequently breaks so that they can't catch as many fish as before. To solve the matter, K. would like a loan to purchase additional equipment for fishing activities.

The others borrowers are all people who live in Siem Reap Province. They are:

Mrs. P., who is a fisherman seeking a loan to buy a boat machine for her business. She was not available for the photograph so her husband is shown instead.

Mrs. S. is a rice farmer and a local fisherman and is requesting a loan to buy nets for fishing.

Mrs. C. sells groceries out of her home and needs a loan to increase her stock of groceries.

Mrs. P. is a fisherman applying for a loan to support her business operation.
