Phalla's story

Phalla N., 37, and her husband, Sam-Ol Mol, live in a small village about 10 miles from Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital city. Married for 17 years, they have two sons and one daughter. Two of their children are currently in school.

To help support her family, Phalla is woven silk into cloth, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a man in their village, who then sells in Phnom Penh's markets. Meanwhile, Sam-Ol works as a salesman.

Phalla and Sam-Ol have recently moved into a new house. Phalla is requesting a loan of $1,200 U.S. dollars to build a fence around their home, and also purchase more silk for weaving.
