Mrs. Sokhoeun S. is a silk weaver. Her husband, Mr. Sothorn Soem, is a policeman. They have been married since 1986 and have four children – one son and three daughters. One of them is married and lives outside the family home and the others attend school. The family lives in a village across the Mekong River, about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.
One of Sokhoeun's daughters is attending university and is in the second year. Sokhoeun hopes to support her child's further education, so is therefore applying for a loan of $900 to pay her daughter's school fees and purchase silk materials for continuing her weaving business.
