Saroeun's story

Mrs. Saroeun S., age 45, and her husband, Mr. Yorn Yin, age 44, live in a small village across the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1990 and have six children: three sons and three daughters. Three of their children attend school, one child is a weaver and the youngest child is still very young and stays at home.

Saroeun has been a silk weaver for 17 years, a skill she learned from her neighbor. She sells her finished products to a middle man in the village, who then takes them to sell in Phnom Penh. Her husband has been a house builder and rice grower for the last 10 years. He is a horse cart driver as well.

Saroeun is requesting a loan of 300USD to purchase silk material for her weaving business and part of the loan for growing rice.
