Mrs. O. Tha got married in 1979 and has 7 children: 2 sons and 5 daughters. Her husband is a rice and vegetable farmer. She learned to weave silk from her parents and started her silk production business in 1979. 3 of her daughters also weave silk at home. Before borrowing money from MAXIMA, she had only one loom. After a series of loans from MAXIMA she has built 2 more.

To date, she has taken out 5 loans from MAXIMA. She is now requesting a loan of $700. She will use this loan to purchase silk material and sewing thread and pay fees for selecting and embroidering for her and her daughters' looms.
