A loan of $200 helped to purchase silk material for his weaving business.


Sokhom's story

Mr. Sokhom P. (pictured here), age 49, and his wife, Mrs. Sam-un Nao, age 32, have been married since 2001. They have two children, a son who attends school and one young daughter. The family lives on an Island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Sokhom has been a silk weaver since he was sixteen years old. He sells his finished products to the middleman in the village who then, in turn, sells them in the Phnom Penh market. Mrs. Sam-un has been selling groceries for one year. Sokhom does not have enough capital to purchase silk materials for his weaving business, so he is requesting his first loan of $200 to provide capital for his business.
