Kimseang C., 40, is widow with no children. She lives with her parents and sister in a village about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

For the past six years, Kimseang has earned a living by weaving silk into cloth. She sells her finished products to a middle man in her village, who then sells them in Phnom Penh.

Kimseang is requesting a loan of $1,000 U.S. dollars to buy raw silk use in her weaving. She also hopes to buy a motorbike for her family.
