Mrs. Sophea S. sells fish in the local market in Keo Lart Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Her husband, Mr. Sok Chhim, also assists his wife on the fish-selling business. He usually goes to buy more fish for his wife to resell. Unfortunately, Mrs. Sophea S.’s business now faces a small obstacle because Mrs. Sophea S. does not have enough money to purchase more fish in order to expand her business. Thus, Mrs. Sophea S. decided to ask for a loan for this purpose. She is 40 and the mother of three children, all of whom attend a local school. Her husband is on the left of the photo.
