So's Group's story

Thirteen members form this village bank loan, located in Krouch village, Kandal province. Mrs. So S., a 41-year-old married woman, has been selected as the village bank president. With the loans, they hope to increase their income to improve their families' living conditions.

Mrs. So S. is a farmer who owns a plot of land that she uses to cultivate rice for a living. She faces a problem in that her rice field does not have enough water to support it. So, she decided to ask for a loan to purchase a water pump to irrigate her crop. As well as farming, she also breeds pigs and poultry.

Her husband, Mr. Mang Vanna, 43 years old, works as house constructor and also helps on his wife's farm. They have five children; one is a farmer, the others are attending the local village school and also help in their mother's businesses.
