Mrs. Sokhoeun L. and her husband, Mr. Sophal Mov, live on an Island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 2001 and have two sons, one of whom attends school while the other one is still young.

The couple has been operating a silk-weaving business for more than ten years. They sell their products to the middleman in the village who then, in turn, sells in Phnom Penh or other places.

Sokhoeun has obtained a Kiva loan one time already. She how is requesting another loan, in the amount of $700, to purchase silk material for continuing her weaving business. She will also use a part of the loan to help finance her mother’s business selling roasted beef and boiled duck eggs.
