Nan's story

Mrs. Nan Y., 26, and her husband, Mr. Bunthoeun Hem, 28, live on an island of the Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 2000 and have three children: one son and two daughters. One of her children is in school and other two are still at home.

Mrs. Nan has been a silk weaver for five years, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh. Besides weaving, she also raises pigs, and Mr. Bunthoeun has sold ice for five years and also assists his wife to raise pigs. Mrs. Nan is requesting a loan of US$500 to purchase piglets to raise.
