Mrs. Sokhon Kung Village Bank Group's story

Thirteen people who live in Sampan Leu village in Kandal province make up this village bank loan. They will each use the loan for different purposes that can improve their businesses. All the other members selected Mrs. Sokhon K. as the village bank president. She is 51 years old. She is a farmer who owns a plot of land to grow crops to sell to support her family. Her problem is that her field has infertile soil. So to improve production, Mrs. Sokhon K. is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer, gasoline and rice seed, and with the rest of the loan she will rent a plow to plow her field. She is a widow with four children, two of whom are seamstresses in the garment factory. Another sells for a private company, and the youngest is attending the local public school.
