A loan of $500 helped to buy a new boat and fishing materials for her husband’s fishing business.


Sokkim's story

Sokkim (pictured with her young daughter) is 41 years old and her husband, Peou, is 45 years old. The family lives in a village along National Road Number Five, approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. Sokkim and her husband have six children: three sons and three daughters. Two are garment workers, two are lathe operators, and the other two attend school. Sokkim and her husband are rice farmers. Sokkim’s husband is also a fisherman and does construction work. Sokkim is asking for her first loan of $500 to buy a new boat and fishing materials for her husband’s fishing business, because his boat and fishing materials are old and broken.
