A loan of $600 helped to build a fence for the house and purchase silk materials for weaving.

Khom's story

Mrs. Khom S., 58, and her husband, Mr. Lun Phoeng, 58, live on an island of Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1979 and have four daughters; three of them are married and live outside the family home. The youngest daughter weaves silk at home.

Mrs. Khom S. has been a silk weaver since she was 12 years old, a skill she learned from her neighbor. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh. Her husband spins thread for neighbors to get extra income. He has been farming since he was young.

Mrs. Khom is requesting a loan of $600 to build a fence for her house and purchase silk materials for her daughter's weaving of silk.
