A loan of $700 helped to buy more raw silk in order to produce silk products.


Pen's story

Pen P., 41, is a weaver of traditional Cambodian silk, an activity that earns her an income of USD 2.5 per day. Her husband (pictured here because P. was not available) is a construction worker, earning an income of USD 2 per day. Their eldest child is currently employed at a local garment factory and earns an income of USD 2 per day to help cover the family expenses.

P. is requesting a loan of USD 700 in order to purchase more raw silk so that she can produce more silk products. In the future, she would like to use any additional profits toward necessary repairs to her house. This is her first loan from CREDIT, a long-standing Kiva partner in Cambodia.

P. resides with her husband and five children in Takeo Province, Cambodia, an area known for its pre-Angkorean temples.
