A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase more fish to dry for sale.


Mann's story

Mrs. Mann S., 36, sells dried fish in the market and she makes around $10 per day. Her husband, Mr. Ty Map, 38, makes dried fish for his wife to sell. He goes to buy fish from stock places and fishmongers to dry at his house, and he spends one day or two days drying them. They have three children, one of whom is married and lives in the family’s home. They live in Sesin Village, Banteay Meanchey Province.

Because of growing customer demand, Mrs. S. needs to have her husband dry more fish to sell, and now she is requesting a loan of US$ 1200 to purchase more fish to dry for sale. The loan will allow her to increase her family’s income. (Mrs. S.'s husband is pictured.)
