Mrs. Touch K., 36, and her husband, Mr. Kosal Oem, 40, who live on an island of the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1989 and have six children: four sons and two daughters. Both of their daughters are assisting their aunt selling food in Phnom Penh; three sons study in local school, and the youngest stays at home.

Touch, a silk weaver since she was 17 years old, a skill she learned from her mother, sells her finished products to the middleman, who then resells them in Phnom Penh. Her husband has been a mason since their marriage. Touch is now requesting a loan of $250 to purchase more silk material for weaving.
