A loan of $500 helped to purchase more fermented fish and sugar cane for re-sale.

Ben's story

Ben L., age 31, is married and lives in the Kampong Cham, Cambodia. Since 2002, she has been selling fermented fish and sugar cane. She transports the goods out of her village and sells to other villages. Normally, she makes US$ 2.50 each day. Her husband, Hean Sokha, is a motor-taxi driver and is able to make US$ 2.50 per day as well.

This couple together has three children and all of them are students. Ben L. would like to take out a loan of US$ 500 to increase her fermented fish and sugar cane sales. In the future, she plans to own a grinding mill for extra profit to support the family. For her children, she wants them at least to complete high school. (Hean Sokha and a daughter are pictured because Ben L. was was not available.)
