Sarorn's story

Mrs. Sarorn S. (in the picture with her daughter), 65, is a widow with six children: four sons and two daughters. Four of her children are married and live outside the family home and one son attends university and has a part-time job as well. Sarorn also has one daughter (in the picture) who is a widow with five grandchildren; all are living with her. The family lives on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Sarorn has been a silk weaver and a tailor since 1970. She sells her finished products in other provinces which are far away from her house and she sometime sells them to the middleman who sells them in the market in Phnom Penh. She is asking for a loan of US$ 1,200 to purchase a motorbike for her son to drive to school and work, and to buy silk materials for her weaving business.
