Yorn is 49 years old. She is married and resides with a daughter in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in weaving for more than five years, earning approximately $2 daily. Her husband (who joins her in the picture) is a taxi driver who earns about $5 each day. Her daughter is employed in a garment factory and earns $3 per day. Because their present taxi is old, Yorn is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase a new taxi for her husband. This purchase will help her husband attract more customers and earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her weaving business and build a new house if possible.
