Mrs. Chok Saveth Village Bank Group's story

In Samraong village, Takeo province, a group of 11 people makes up the village bank loan group. The group members will use the loan to improve their families' living conditions. Mrs. Chok S. has been selected by the other members as the village bank president. She is a door-to-door Khmer cheese and fish sauce seller, earning some profit to support her family. Her husband is a farmer who owns a more than 2-hectare plot of land to grow rice to sell to support the family and he is a cow middleman. Since her business is going well, she wants to expand. To improve her daily income, Mrs. Chok S. is asking for a loan to buy more Khmer cheese to sell and use the rest of the loan to buy a cow to resell. She has two children, one of whom is enrolled in the local public school while the youngest one is 3 years old.
