A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase silk materials for her silk weaving business and dig a well.

Sotheary's story

Sotheary (in the photo) and her husband are teachers. Besides teaching, she also weaves silk at home when she is not at school, and her husband raises cows and grows rice. The couple has been marred since 2006 and have two sons: one attends school and another one is still young. They live across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Sotheary is asking for a Kiva loan of $1,300 to continue her silk weaving business by buying silk material, and also to dig a well. She will also use a part of the loan to assist in her husband’s rice farm by buying seed, fertilizer and pesticide.
