Mr. Buntheng V., 30, and his wife, Mrs. Sreymao Pol, 33, who live in a small village across the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, married in 1996 and have three children: one son and two daughters. Two of their children attend school and another one is still too young.

Buntheng and his wife have been selling fish for thirteen years. They buy them from the market in Phnom Penh for re-sale in the village market. Now, the couple is in the process of running their new business: selling rice and dried salted fish.

Therefore, Buntheng is requesting his first loan of US$ 1,000 to purchase rice and fish to make dried salted fish for re-sale.
