Sokhoeun C. is 33 years old and lives with her husband and their two children, who are both students, across the Mekong River from Phnom Penh. Having learned the trade of silk weaving from her mother eleven years ago, Sokhoeun is very productive and sells her products to a merchant who eventually distributed them in Phnom Penh. Her husband, on the other hand, has worked as a taxi driver for about eight years. In order to purchase more silk material and increase her productivity, Sokhoeun is requesting a loan of $500.
