Mrs. N. Roeun, 36, and her husband, Mr. Tek Khen, 37, have been married since 1991. They have five children, three sons and two daughters. All of their children are studying in local schools. Roeun’s home is about twenty five kilometers from Phnom Penh. Roeun has been a silk weaver since 1991. It's a skill she learned from her neighbor. Her husband is selling mosquito nets, cotton scarfs, and cloth on his motorbike from village to village. They both work hard to support all of their children to study to as high a level as possible.

Roeun is requesting her first loan from MAXIMA in the amount of $1,000. She will use this loan to purchase silk materials and sewing thread, and to pay for the preparation of her loom. Some of the amount will also be used for expanding her husband’s business of selling mosquito net, cotton scarfs, and cloth.
