Mrs. Sok Chea M. is 37 years old and she lives in Prey Chambak village, Takeo province. She is a silk weaver and earns some income to help support her family. Her husband, Mr. Chan Brarch, is a farmer who owns a plot of land for cultivating rice.
Since her business is going well, Sok Chea wants to expand it, so she decided to ask for a loan to buy more silk, and the rest of the loan she would use to support her husband's farming.
Mrs. Sok Chea M. has five children, two of whom are silk weavers, and the others are students in the local school. Her husband is on the left in the photo.
