A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more silk for decorating.


Hem's story

Hem N., 31, lives with her husband and two children in the Takeo province, Cambodia. She is a professional at decorations and handicrafts. Since 2007, she has been using beads and other materials to make flowers on women's clothes to earn a living and typically make US$3 each day. Decorative dress is a kind of Khmer traditional dress and people wear it during Water Festival, P’chum Ben or Khmer New Year. It takes around 7-10 days to complete each dress and their price is expensive, too. Most people prefer hand-made to machine-made. She said she learned how to decorate from her mother and she has started doing that business as she is not yet married. Hem N. would like a loan of US$1000 to purchase more silk for decorating.
