Savoeun's story

Mr. Savoeun P., age 22 and his wife, Mrs. Sokna Aun, age 21, (shown in the photo ) live in a small village along the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 2006 and just have a young son.

Savoeun and his wife are silk weavers. They sell their finished products to the middleman in the village who then distributes them to sell at the market in Phnom Penh. In addition, Savoeun also grows rice.

Savoeun is requesting his third loan of $500 to purchase silk materials to continue his weaving business. He will also use part of the loan for growing rice.
