Mrs. Channa E. (in the photo) and her husband Mr. Chhorn Cheng, live on an Island of Mekong River, about fifteen kilometres from Phnom Penh, were married in 1988 and have four children, three sons and one daughter. Three of their children are in school and the youngest one stays at home.

Mrs. Channa has been a silk weaver for more than twenty years, a skill she learned from her mother. She also started a new business selling silk products. She buys silk fabrics from weavers in her village and transports them to sell in other provinces far away from her house. Her husband has been a construction worker since 1993.

Mrs. Channa has received loans from Kiva before, and is now requesting a loan of US$500 to purchase silk fabrics for resale.
