Chanlach's story

Mrs. Chanlach H., 48, and her husband married in 1978. They have nine children; six sons and three daughters. Two of their children are married and live outside the family home. One of their children weaves silk at home, two are employed full time and the other four are students. The family lives on an island on the Mekong River about twelve kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Mrs. Chanlach has been a silk weaver for over ten years. It’s a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a middleman in the village who will then sell them in Phnom Penh. Her family has two looms. Her husband is a worker.

She is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase materials for weaving silk.
