A loan of $700 helped to purchase silk fabrics for re-sale.


Sokhen's story

Mrs. Sokhen K., 50, and her husband, Mr. Ven Yang, 53, who live in a small village across the Mekong River about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh, married in 1985 and have four children: two sons and two daughters. One of them is married and lives outside the family house; one daughter is a garment factory worker and another one studies in grade 12.



Sokhen has been selling silk fabrics for four years. She buys them from her villagers for re-sale in Siem Reap province. Her husband has been a farmer since he was young; he grows rice. Sokhen is requesting her first loan of US$ 700 to purchase silk fabrics for re-sale.
