Pisey
Ms. Pisey C., age 30, is single and lives with her parents on an Island of the Mekong River about seventeen kilometers from Phnom Penh City. She has three brothers, one of whom is a construction worker, and two sisters. One of her sisters has full-time employment and the other one weaves silk at home.

Pisey has been a silk weaver for ten years, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a middleman in the village who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh market.

Pisey is requesting her first loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorcycle for her sister to use to commute to work.
