A loan of $700 helped purchase silk materials for weaving.


Yom's story

Mrs. Yom T., 50, is a widow and she has five children; three sons and two daughters. One of her children is married and lives outside the family home. One son is a garment factory worker, one daughter is a silk weaver (pictured here), and the other two children study in the local school. The family lives in a small village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh.


Yom has been a silk weaver for 28 years, a skill she learned from her neighbors. She sells her finished products to the middle man in the village, who then takes the products to sell in Phnom Penh. She is requesting a loan of $700 to purchase silk materials for weaving.
