For the past 16 years, Sony has helped support her family by weaving silk into cloth, a skill she learned from her neighbor. She sells her finished products to a middle man in her village, who then resells it in Phnom Penh's markets. Meanwhile, Voeun is a mason.
To help grow her weaving business, Sony is requesting a loan of $300 U.S. dollars to purchase more silk.
