A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase silk material for weaving.


Yean's story

Mrs. Yean C., 60, and her husband, Mr. Tha Khat, 70, live in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers north of Phnom Penh. They were married in 1964 and have seven children: three sons and four daughters. Two of their sons are married and living in separate houses, and the other son is a tailor. Their four daughters are silk weavers.



Mrs. Yean has been a weaver since 1964, employing a skill she learned from her sister-in-law. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh. Mr. Tha is a farmer. He grows rice and sesame in the farm near the house.



Yean is requesting a loan of US$1000 to purchase silk materials for her three daughters' weaving business.
