A loan of $2,675 helped a member to buy more fish from other people to resell and earn more profits.

Mrs. Sokhom Chea Village Bank Group's story

Sixteen people living in Tareap Doun village in Kandal province comprise this village bank loan. They will use the loan for various purposes.

Mrs. Sokhom C. is the 41-year-old village bank president. She is a fish seller in the local market. Her husband, Mr. Orn davy, is a fisherman. Although they try to work hard, they still earn less income than they need to support their family. Thus, Mrs. Sokhom C. decided to ask for a loan to buy more fish from other people to resell and earn more profits. She has three children who are attending the local school.

Mrs. Chanroen S. did not come in perS. to take a loan but her husband was there, so he is presented in the picture instead.

In this group: Sokhom, Sophea, Sreng, Mom, Shivo, Chanroen, Touch, Many, Hanh, Vanna, Dany, Chan Ry, Orn, Van Learb, Nary, Sokhy
