Mrs. Sakhorn O., 50, and her husband, Mr. Heng Leng, 56, live in a small village across from the Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers north of Phnom Penh. They were married in 1978 and have eight children: four sons and four daughters. Four of their children have full time employment and the other four are in school.

Mrs. Sakhorn has been in the business of selling silk products and mosquito nets for three years. She buys them from weavers in her village to then sell in a nearby province. Mr. Heng has been a carpenter for thirty years. The couple hopes to continue to increase their business so that they can support their children’s studies to the highest possible level. She is requesting her first loan, in the amount of US$300, to purchase silk products and mosquito nets for resale.
