Chrep, age 34, is a farmer. Her husband, Vantha, age 36, is a soldier, and they live in a village about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1996 and have three children--two sons and one daughter. Two attend school and the other one is still too young.

Chrep wants to start a new fish farming business, so she is applying for her first loan in the amount of $500 to buy small fish and fish feed.
