A loan of $700 helped to purchase silk material for weaving.

Sam-Ul's story

Mrs. Sam-ul U., 46, and her husband, Mr. Chouheang Chum, 58, who live on an island in the Mekong River aboU. fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1979 and have eight children, four sons and four daughters. Three of their children are married and live outside the family home. Of the other five children, four are in local schools and the other is a security guard in Phnom Penh.

Sam-ul has been a silk weaver since 1996, a skill she learned from her sister-in-law. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh. Mr. Chouheang has been doing farming since 1979. He grows ginger and corn in the farm not far from their home.

Now Sam-ul is requesting a loan of US$ 500 to purchase silk materials to continue her weaving business.
