Mr. You Y., 36, and his wife, Srey-yem Tann, 25, who live along National Road Number Six about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 2000 and have two daughters. The oldest daughter is in Grade Two and the youngest is at home, yet too young to attend school.

You has been a fisherman for ten years, having learned the skill from his parents. He fishes from the Mekong River and the lake near the village, and his wife sells the catch at a market about ten kilometers from home. Now You is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase fishing materials for his business.
