Mrs. Chhoeng Koem Village Bank Group's story

Twenty members in Slab Ta Aon Village in Kandal Province made up a Village Bank, and Mrs. Chhoeng K. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members of this group. She is a fruit seller in the local market. Since her business is going well, Mrs. Chhoeng K. decided to ask for a loan to buy more fruit from Phnom Penh to resell in the local market. Her husband, Mr. Chhoeng K., is a soldier, but he has now retired and he receives a small salary from his position to support the family. Nowadays, Mr. Chhoeng K. helps his wife with her business in order to improve their living conditions together.

Mrs. Chhoeng K. is a 50-year-old married mother with five children, two of whom are employed in a garment factory, and they can make $55 each. Another is an immigrant working abroad, while the other two are enrolled in high school.
