A loan of $200 helped to purchase silk materials for her silk weaving business.


Chhuneng's story

Mrs. Chhuneng C. (pictured with her loom), 41 years old, and her husband, Mr. Sokun Sam, 44 years old, live on an Island in the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They have been married since 1990 and have three children: one son and two daughters.

Chhuneng has been a silk weaver since she was 16 years old. This is a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a middleman in the village who then takes them to sell in a Phnom Penh market.

She is requesting her first loan of $200 to purchase silk materials for her silk weaving business.
