Mrs. Mey Sokhom Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan consists of eight people who live in Kansaom Ak village in Takeo province. They will each use their portion of the loan in various ways to support their families. Mrs. Mey S. is a village bank president who has been selected by the other members. She is a farm laborer and a farmer who owns a 2-hectare plot of land where she grows rice to sell to support her family. She faces some obstacles because her field is infertile and it has a lot of insects. To improve rice production, Mrs. Mey S. is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide. Her husband, Mr. Sokoeun Long, is a fisherman. They are supporting two children who are attending the local public school.
