Savoeun's story

Mrs. Savoeun V., age 44, is a widow with one son and two daughters (shown in the picture with her daughter). Two children are in school and the other one weaves silk at home. The family lives in a small village across the Mekong River, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Savoeun has been a silk weaver for over 10 years. She sells her finished products to a middle man in the village who then takes them to sell in the market in Phnom Penh. She hopes to set up one more loom for her daughter, which would help her to earn more income. Savoeun is requesting a loan of $600 USD to purchase silk material for her weaving business and to set up one more loom.
