Heang's story

Heang S., 38, is a widow who lives with her three children in the Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. She does professional handicrafts. Since 1995, she been earning a living using beads and other materials to make flowers on woman clothes; she typically makes US$8 each day. People wear traditional decorated Khmer dresses during the Water Festival, P’chum Ben or Khmer New Year. It takes around 7-10 days to complete each dress and its price is expensive, too. Most of the people prefer handmade rather than machine-made decoration. She learned how to decorate from her mother and she started doing that business also before her marriage. Heang S. would like a loan of US$1200 to purchase more silk for decoration.
