Sokheang's story

Mrs. Sokheang S., 33, and her husband, Mr. Neang Ny, 32, live in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 2000 and have two daughters. One of them attends school and the other one is still young and stays at home. Sokheang has been a silk weaver for ten years, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a middle man in the village who then takes it to sell at the Phnom Penh market. Her husband, Neang, has been selling pigs for ten years. He buys them at one village for resale at another village. Sokheang is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase silk material for weaving and to buy pigs for resale.
