Mrs. Veasna H., 49, and her husband, Mr. Yorn Phai, live on an Island in the Mekong River, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1979 and have seven children, three sons and four daughters. One of the daughters is married and lives outside the family home, while the other three weave silk at home. All of their sons attend a local school.

Mrs. Veasna has been a silk weaver since she was young, a skill she learned from her mother. Mr. Yorn is also a silk weaver. They sell their finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes their material to sell in Phnom Penh. They have three looms in the family's weaving business.

Mrs. Veasna is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to purchase silk thread to continue her weaving business.
