Sokhorn (pictured above) is 49 years old and her husband, Roem, is 52 years old. They have been married since 1985. They have one daughter who is married and still lives in the family home and one daughter who works for a bakery. The family lives in a village about 25 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

In the local market, Sokhorn sells fruit and fish that her husband catches. Her husband is a fisherman. Because he has to paddle his boat which is difficult for him, he spends a lot of time moving his boat to other places and he can’t get back home in time to sell the fish he caught. Hence, Sokhorn decides to request a loan in the amount of 700 USD to assist in her husband’s fishing business by buying a boat motor and repair the boat.
