Ly's story

Ly S. is a rice farmer in Kampong Cham province. She has been working the same land since 1980 and knows her homeland well. She is very smart when it comes to her time and the seasons; during the rainy season she keeps tools for fishing to supplement her income. Between fishing and farming she earns about $4.50 per day. Her husband farms even while she is fishing and earns an additional two dollars per day.

They have six children (a normal amount for a farming family) and one is married. Two of the older children help support the family working in a garment factory. They each make $40 per month.

Ly S. wants to develop both her farm and fishing businesses. She will apply her loan towards buying a small wooden boat with a small outboard motor. She will also buy gas for the boat and good fertilizer for her fields.
