A loan of $600 helped to purchase silk material for weaving.


Mara's story

Miss Mara C., 32, is single and lives with her elderly parents on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. She has three sisters who live in the same house; two of them are married and the other one is single and is a silk weaver.

Since she was sixteen years old, Miss Mara has been a silk weaver, a skill she learned from her mother. She and her sister sell their finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh.

Mara is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase silk materials for her weaving business.
