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.
