Sotheary's story

Mrs. Sotheary U., 41, has been married to Mr. Phea Pok, 45, since 1984 and they have four children: three sons and one daughter. Her husband is a mason. The family lives on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. One son is a construction worker and other two are in school. One of her sons just finished his beauty salon skill training and runs a beauty salon at his home. Sotheary has been a silk weaver since 1980, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes the products to sell in Phnom Penh. Sotheary is asking for a loan of $500 to purchase silk materials for continuing her silk weaving and to buy materials for her son’s beauty salon.
