A loan of $800 helped a member to purchase more fishing implements.

Khat's Group's story

This group of borrowers consists of four people. Its leader, Mr. K., 39, earns a living by catching fish in and around Beung Tunle Sap Lake, an important place for fishing. He normally earns an average of US$ 3 a day from his fishing and has been doing this since 2000. He is married to Kun, 33, who works with him catching fish, and she also is a good mother to five children and cooks delicious foods.

K. is facing problems because his fishing implements break frequently, so he can't catch as many fish as before; thus, he needs a loan in order to purchase more fishing implements.

The other three borrowers are:

S., 55, a local fisherman who is requesting a loan to buy nets for his fishing business;

C., 36, who catches fish for sale, and is asking for a loan to purchase extra nets for fishing; and

C., 28, a grocery seller who is applying for a loan to buy grocery inventory.

The borrowers live in Chong Khneas Commune in Siem Reap Province.
