Mrs. Saroeun Phul Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan, located in Kdol village in Takeo province, has eighteen people. They have all selected Mrs. Saroeun P., who is 29 years old, as the village bank president. They will use their portion of the loan in varied ways to improve their businesses.

Mrs. Saroeun P. is a farmer who owns a half-hectare (1.25-acre) plot of land that she uses to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Vorn V., is a construction worker.

Mrs. Saroeun P. faces a problem in that her field has infertile soil. So, to improve production, she is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer. With the rest of the loan she will hire a farm laborer to help her to grow rice.

Mrs. Saroeun P. is the mother of four children, two of whom are attending the local school while the others are too young to work or study.

In this group: Saroeun, Sophal, Leng, Sarun, Kolon, Sophat, San, Sokha, Keo, Kim Hong, Kim Han, Chan Thol, Bun Sim, Sovann, Sarom, Sarom, Chhoeurn, Sokhom
