A loan of $300 helped to purchase a boat to use for his fishing business.

Prum's story

Mr. Prum S., age 35, and his wife, Mrs. Kimsan Pong, age 32, have been married since 1992 and have five children: two sons and three daughters. Three of them attend school and other two are still young. He also has his mother living with him. They are living along National Road Number Five, approximately 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Prum is not in the photo, but his wife was available instead.

Prum has been a fisherman since 1990. His wife sells flowers and fish that her husband caught at Prek Phnao market, about four kilometers from her house. But, now she has stopped her business for a while because she just delivered a baby. Besides the business, the couple grows rice as well.

Prum does not have his own boat and the boat that he uses to fish every day belongs to his relative. So he is requesting his first loan of US$ 300 to purchase his own boat.
