Mrs. K., age 33, has been married for many years. She has been a silk weaver for 19 years, a skill she learned from her grandmother. She has three children who attend school. All of them assist her with weaving silk when they are free from their studies.

Mrs. K. sells her finished products to a middleman who resells them at the market in Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. The villagers also hire Mrs. K. to spin silk, and she earns extra income from these jobs. In addition, her husband owns a car and uses it to pick up passers-by for income.

Mrs. K. hopes to earn more profits, so she is requesting a loan to buy mango in bulk from farmers and then sell the mango retail in the market for a profit. She will also use 40% of loan to repair a broken car.
