Mrs. Loeng C., 33, and her husband, Mr. Thy Chamroeun, 46, who live on an Island in Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 2000 and have two children, one son and one daughter.

Mrs. Loeng has been a silk weaver since 1993, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then takes it to sell in Phnom Penh. Her husband has been a boat builder for over twenty years.

Mrs. Loeng is requesting a loan of $300 to purchase silk materials to continue her weaving business.
