A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase silk materials for weaving.


Eng's story

Mrs. Eng S., 52, and her husband, Mr. Vannak Long, 49, who live on an island in the Mekong River about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They were married in 1982 and have three children: two sons and one daughter who is married but lives inside the family home. One of their sons works in a decoration company and another has full-time employment. Besides her children, Eng also has one sister living with her.

Eng has been a silk weaver for 14 years, a skill she learned from her neighbor. She sells her finished products to the middleman in the village who then takes her work to sell at market in Phnom Penh. Eng sells grocery items at her home as well. Her husband has been a construction worker and fisherman since 1979. Eng is requesting her second loan of $1,000 to purchase silk materials for her weaving business and to buy more grocery items for resale.
