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

Sineat's story

Mrs. Sineat E. , 46, and her husband, Mr. Song Soy, 50, who live on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1979 and have four children; three sons and one daughter. One of her children is married and lives outside the family home. Two of the children are silk weavers and the youngest one studies in the local school.

Mrs. Sineat has been a silk weaver since she was seventeen years old, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes it to sell in Phnom Penh. Her husband is a chef. He cooks for weddings and other ceremonies in his village and near-by villages.

Sineat is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase silk materials for her and her daughters' weaving.
