A loan of $250 helped to finish her daughter’s house.


Saroeun's story

Mrs. Saroeun Y., 51, and her husband have been married for over thirty years. They have four children. Three of their children are married and live outside the family home. Their youngest daughter is a silk weaver. The family lives on an Island in the Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

Mrs. Saroeun has been a silk weaver since she was young. It’s a skill she learned from her parents. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who takes them to sell in Phnom Penh.

Now, Mrs. Saroeun is requesting a loan of $250 to finish her daughter’s house (she is shown in the photo with her). Her daughter, Mrs. Sreykhouch Ty, is in the process of building a house in front of her parents’ house. Sreykhouch is a silk weaver and her husband is a village doctor.
