Yean married in 1964 and has 7 children, 3 sons and 4 daughters. She learned to weave silk from her sister-in-law in 1964 and started producing silk at that time. Two of her daughters who are still living under her roof also weave silk. Her husband farms and raises cows and buffalos.

Yean has already borrowed and repaid two loans from MAXIMA. The current loan amount she is requesting is US$ 1,000. Yean plans to use this loan to purchase silk material and sewing thread and to pay for selecting and preparing thread on the looms for herself and for her daughters’ looms.
