A loan of $300 helped to buy silk for a weaving business.


Sony's story

Sony S. and her husband, Voeun Krouch, live in a small village on the Mekong River about 10 miles north of Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital city. Married for 24 years, they have one son and four duaghters. Two of their children are married themselves; one son is a construction worker; and the youngest two daughters are in school.



For the past 16 years, Sony has helped support her family by weaving silk into cloth, a skill she learned from her neighbor. She sells her finished products to a middle man in her village, who then resells it in Phnom Penh's markets. Meanwhile, Voeun is a mason.



To help grow her weaving business, Sony is requesting a loan of $300 U.S. dollars to purchase more silk.
