Vanna, 24, is a silk weaver. Her husband, Poeurn, 37, is a soldier. They live in a village across the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 2007 and have one young son.

Vanna is asking for a loan of $400 to purchase silk materials for her weaving business.

Photo: Vanna is not pictured with her loom because the house where she lives is flooded, so she needs to move her looms to the place that is not affected by flooding.
