A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase silk thread to use for weaving more cloth and scarves (Krama).


Sok's story

Sok is 41 years old. She is married and resides with four children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in weaving for more than ten years, earning approximately $2 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who can earn about $3 each day. Two of her children are employed. They earn about $6 daily.

In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Sok is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase silk threads to use for weaving more cloth and scarves (Krama) to sell. This purchase would help her earn more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
