Mrs. Soem Savoeun Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Soem S., 41, is the village bank president, having been selected by the fifteen people in this group loan. They will use their portion of the loan for various ways to support their families living in Chen village in Takeo province.

She is a farmer who owns a half hectare plot of land on which she cultivates rice to sell to support her family and she is also a fish seller in the local market where she is able to earn a large profit. She has some problems because her field contains infertile soil. So, to improve production, Mrs. Soem S. is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and with the rest of the loan she will hire farming laborers.

Her husband, Mr. Ou Ly, is a recycle seller and a pig breeder. Through these activities, they support four children who are attending school.
