Mrs. Srey Leak Ty Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan consists of eight people and they all live in Tonle Bati village in Takeo province.

Mrs. Srey Leak T. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a housewife. Her husband, Mr. Lay Bun Chhorn, is a farmer who owns a plot of land on which he cultivates rice. Aside from this plantation, he is employed operating a rice mill (a machine used to remove the chaff and outer husks from rice grains).

Now Mrs. Srey Leak T. wants to become a dessert seller to earn income for her family. Thus, she decided to ask for a loan to buy some plates, glasses, tables, chairs, and some ingredients to make dessert to sell. She hopes to increase her income and improve her family’s standard of living with this loan.

Mrs. Srey Leak T. is 31 years old and the mother of five children, three of whom are enrolled in the local school and the others are too young to work or study.

Mrs. Visal T. did not come to take her loan but her husband did, so he is shown in the photo instead.
