Art (in the photo) and her husband, Roeung, live on an island in the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married for almost 30 years and have nine children: seven daughters and two sons.

Art is a weaver, while her husband stays at home. She is requesting a loan of US $1,200 to continue her weaving business by buying weaving materials. She will also use part of the loan to renovate her restroom because it is old and small.
