Proeung's story

Mrs. Proeung S. is 21 years old and makes a living sewing and weaving clothes that she sells to people in her area. She also makes clothing to order for customers. Her business earns about $2 to $3 a day. Her husband earns about $4 a day selling sand. In Cambodia, people use sand for many reasons -- to fill ponds, in the foundations of their houses, or in industrial production. Usually, they get sand from the bottom of a river or from special plots of land.

Mrs. Proeung S. has applied for a loan to buy materials and cloth for her business. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy a plot of land where her husband can dig sand to sell for a profit.
