Mrs. An H. (pictured here), age 62, is a widow with three sons and two daughters who weave silk at home. One of them is married and lives in a separate home; one is a construction worker, and another one attends school. They are living on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.
