Mrs. Rom C., 37, sells dried fish and smoked fish at her local market. She earns around $7 per day from these activities. Her husband, Mr. Chek Saroeun, 37, is a repairman of grinding machines, earning approximately $5 per day. They have two children, both of whom live in the family home in Donteav Village, Battambang Province.
C. requests a loan of $900 to purchase more dried and smoked fish for her business. This loan will allow her to increase her inventory and thereby increase her revenue from sales.
