The family lives in a small village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Yom has been a silk weaver for 28 years, a skill she learned from her neighbors. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then takes the products to sell in Phnom Penh. She is requesting a loan of $700 to purchase silk materials for weaving.
