Nasy (pictured with her loom) and her husband, Hoeurn, live in a small village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers north of Phnom Penh. They have been married since 1991 and have six sons - two are construction workers, three attend school, and one is a monk.

Nasy is a silk weaver, while her husband sells cows and does construction work. In addition, they grow rice for food. Nasy is asking for a loan in the amount of $1,000 to purchase silk materials for her weaving business. She will also use part of the loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides to maintain her farm.
