Mrs. Naov Shem Village Bank Group's story

This village bank, which consists of eighteen members, is located in Tareap DoU. village in Kandal province. The members plan to use the loan for different purposes. Mrs. Naov S. is the village bank president, and was selected by the members. She sells fish at the local market. Her husband, Mr. Sab Van H., is a fisherman. He is facing a challenge with his fishing, because he does not have enough materials to support his work. Thus, Mrs. Naov S. decided to ask for a loan to purchase fishnets for her husband’s work.

She is a 48 year old mother of eight children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory while the other two are fishermen, one stays at home to do housework, and the others are enrolled in the local school. Mrs. Sokhneang L. was not present for the picture, so her husband is presented in the photo instead.
