Chheu Teal Korng village:.Remarkable how much CWS has accomplished here in less than a.year, because they are working with such a willing and committed local committee. CWS is also supporting micro loans and training for fish, produce and.mushroom farming. Nearly half of the families in this community are women-led households, mostly as a result of conflict.  Microloans can help women like Hing Ran (52), who had been taught as a girl how to make beautiful baskets out of bamboo.   A widow with one daughter, she did not have a home and was living with a niece when CWS partner helped her with a plan to market her baskets.  Her next dream:  a bicycle so that she can deliver her baskets to market.  Daughter is Sok Heng (9).
