Miss Sitha L., 33, is single and lives with her elderly parents and one sister on an island on the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. Her sister has full time employment in Phnom Penh.

Miss Sitha has been a silk weaver since she was 15 years old, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then resells them in Phnom Penh. She is now requesting a loan of $400 to purchase silk material for weaving.
