Mrs. Koin C. (age 47) and her family live in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers north of Phnom Penh. Koin and her husband (also age 47), have been married for eighteen years and have four children. The two younger study in secondary school in the village.

Koin is requesting this, her fourth loan from Maxima, to purchase and prepare a second loom and to buy thread for weaving. She has been weaving for six years. Her daughter who will work on the second loom (see photo) learned at the same time as Koin. They said they can each finish about fifteen pieces in a month so they feel they will have no problem paying back the loan.
