Mrs. Khean K., 40, and her husband, Mr. Saroeun Meach, 47, live on an island on the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1989 and have four children--two sons and two daughters. One of the children weaves silk at home, and the other three are in school.

Mrs. Khean has been a silk weaver for over 10 years. This is a skill that she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a man in the village, who then takes it to sell in Phnom Penh. Mr. Saroeun has been a taxi driver for over 10 years. The couple is in the process of building their new house. They need money to buy lattices to make the walls of the house.

Mrs. Khean is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase lattices to use to make the walls of their house.
