Saem Sokhey is the newly elected Community Based Organization (CBO) leader of Srae Chrov village. In addition to her rice fields she also has a small piece of land about 2 kilometers from her home where she grows corn. During the harvest season, she picks corn every day. She will boil it at her home in the early morning and early afternoon, and then she takes a basket of steaming corn on her motorbike to sell in the village. Saem Sokhey is different from her neighbors. Her industrious and hard-working spirit shines through and gives confidence to the villagers that she can speak out on their behalf.
