Mrs. S. Chuon learned to weave from her neighbor in 1987, and then she started her own business weaving silk at home.

Her husband is a director of the primary school in the community. He also plants vegetables in the village in his free time. They were married in 1978 and have 4 children, 3 sons and 1 daughter.

She has borrowed money from MAXIMA three times already. Now she requests a loan of $700. She will use this money to purchase silk materials and sewing thread, and pay fees for selecting and preparing silk on her loom. She will use some of the money to buy pesticide fertilizer for her husband's farm.
