A loan of $400 helped to purchase silk materials for weaving.


Sokun's story

Mrs. Sokun L., 29, and her husband, Mr. Pak Bo, 32, who live on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 2001 and have two children; one son and one daughter. All of them are in the local school.



Mrs. Sokun has been a silk weaver for fifteen years, a skill she learned from her mother. She is also teaching her husband to become a silk weaver. Besides weaving, he is also a construction worker. The couple sells their finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes it to sell in Phnom Penh.



Sokun is requesting a loan of 400 to purchase silk materials for her weaving business.
