Chan's story

Mrs. Chan S., 60, and her husband, Mr. Thoeun Soun, 66, live in a small village across the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1973 and have five children: two sons who are in school and three daughters. Two of their daughters are married but still live in the family home and the other daughter is a silk weaver.

Chan has been a silk weaver for 40 years. She sells her finished products to a middleman, who sells them at a market in Phnom Penh. Her husband has been farming for 42 years. He grows many types of vegetables and other crops.

Chan is requesting her second loan of $1000 to purchase water pipe and a water pump machine for her husband's farm and to buy silk material for her weaving business.
