Sinat (pictured with her loom) and her husband, Narath, live on an island located 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have been married since 2002 and have two children- one son and one daughter.

Sinat is a weaver, while her husband is a motor taxi driver. His motor taxi is old and often broken, so he spends a lot of money to repair it. Hence, Sinat decides to apply for a loan of 1,000 USD to help her husband by purchasing the new motorbike to replace the old one.
