Mrs. Sot Village Bank Group's story

Eleven people, who selected Mrs. Sot to become a village bank president, will use their portion of the loan for different purposes to improve their families to a higher standard of living. Mrs. Sot weaves silk cloth at her home where she can earn some money to support her family. Her business is getting on well and she wants to expand. So to improve this purpose, Mrs. Sot is requesting a loan to buy more silk for weaving. Her husband, Mr. Muk, is a farmer who owns a very small piece of land where he can cultivate rice. He sells part of the rice yield and supports his family with the rest of the rice. This couple supports five children, one of whom is a Chinese translator, another is a seamstress in garment factory, two attend local public school, and the youngest one is 7 years old.
