Mrs. Sok Ret Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has twenty-six people who live in Preaek Ta Ong Ti Muoy village in Kandal province. Mrs. Sok R. is the village bank president and her age is 62. She has been selected by the other members who will each use their loan for different purposes. She and her husband, Mr. Nguon Khut, are farmers who own a 1-hectare plot of land where they grow rice, not to sell but to support their family. She is also a mat weaver while her husband is a construction worker. She faces a problem because it is time to grow crops on her field but she does not have money to support the crops. So, to improve production, Mrs. Sok R. is applying for a loan to buy rice seed and gasoline. With any remainder of the loan she is going to hire farming laborers and oxen to plow her field. Through this activity they support three children, two of whom are employed in an organization, while the other is a student.
