Mr. Sophal Uy's Village Bank Group's story

This village bank which consists of twenty-four members is located in Preak Svay village in Kandal province, and they plan to use the loan which they obtained for different purposes. Mr. Sophal U. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. He and his wife, Mrs. B. Sary, are farmers who own a plot of land where they grow vegetables.

In their growing, they face an obstacle because their field is far from the irrigation system. Thus, Mr. Sophal U. decided to ask for a loan to bU. hoses, and he would use the rest of money to cultivate rice. He is 45 years old and the father of six children, one of whom is a construction worker while two others are farmers; two are enrolled in the local school and the remaining one is too young to work or study.
