With the help of a previous loan, Pov (pictured at her loom), continues her silk weaving business. In addition, she buys more finished silk fabrics from other weavers in her village and sells them in other provinces away from her house.

Her husband, Aun, is a farmer. The couple has been married since 1983 and live on an island in the Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Pov is asking for another loan in the amount of $500 to purchase weaving materials for her weaving business and to buy additional silk fabrics for sale.
