Bunthorn's story

Mrs. Bunthorn C., 59, and her husband, Mr. Hey Hun, 62, live in a small village along National Road #5, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They were married in 1982 and have ten children: four sons and six daughters. Three of them are married and live outside the family house. Two daughters are garment factory workers, one son is a fisherman and the other children attend school.

Bunthorn has been a fish farmer for 2 years. It is a skill she learned from her neighbor. She buys small fishes to raise; when the fishes grow enough, she sells them to a middleman. Her husband has been a fisherman for 15 years. He fishes in the river nearby his house.

Bunthorn is requesting a loan of $1000 to buy a surface air supply system to dive into the river to place fishing nets. Parts of a surface air supply system include a generator, air compressor, regulators, and diving harnesses. The remainder of the loan will be used to fishing nets.
