Khov's story

Khov B., 68, and her husband, Dem Krut, 69, live in a small village across from the Mekong River, which is about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1964 and have five children. Four of their children are married and live outside the family home. The youngest daughter weaves silk at home. Khov and Dem also live with their two grandchildren and niece, and they are all silk weavers. Khov is a silk weaver and a rice farmer. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then sells the items in Phnom Penh. Even though both are in their late 60's, they are both still strong enough to work.

Khov is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase more silk materials for five looms for her weaving business.
