Mrs. Sokha Tai Village Bank Group's story

In Cheung Loung village in Takeo province, fourteen people make up this village bank loan group. They will use the loan for different purposes so that it can improve their businesses in the future.

Mrs. Sokha T. is the village bank president who has been selected by all the members. She is a farmer who owns a very small piece of land to cultivate rice on to sell to support her family. Her problem is that her field has infertile soil. So to improve rice production, Mrs. Sokha T. is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer. Her husband, Mr. Chantha Phorn, is a traditional musician and aside from this, he is a fisherman too. She has four children, one of whom is a laborer, while the others are enrolled in local public school.

In this group: Sokha, Mon, Toek, Neang, Ngim, Thol, Voeurn, Korn, Rom, Sophat, Sari, Rom, Phea, Sang Hieng
