Mrs. Sokhoeun S., 44, and her husband, Mr. Yen Pich, 39, live on an Island of the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1990 and have four children: two sons and two daughters, all of whom attend school. Her husband has been driving a horse and cart in his village for one year.

Sokhoeun has been a silk weaver for nineteen years; she sells her finished products to the middleman in the village who then takes it to sell at market in Phnom Penh. She is asking for a loan of $200 to purchase silk to continue her silk weaving business.
