Mrs. Phin Dim Village Bank Group
Mrs. Phin D. is the village bank president, as selected by the members. She is 36 years old and the mother of five children; three of whom are employed in a garment factory while the other two attend a local school. She owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice. She cultivates in the dry season, but faces a problem because her field has infertile soil, which affects crop production. She is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers for the field and fuel for her water pump so she can make her crop more productive. Her husband, Mr. Sim Thea, is a construction worker who also works to support the family.
Note: Mrs. Sok Chanry, who is a group guarantor, is also presented in the picture with the village bank members.
