Mrs. Chan Sy Tum Village Bank Loan Group's story

Fourteen people who all live in Chheu Teal village in Takeo province comprise the village bank loan. Mrs. CH. Sy T. is the village bank president selected by the members. She is a silk weaver in the local village. Since this business is going well, she wants to expand it. So she decided to ask for a loan to buy more silks to weave. She hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with the loan. Her husband, Mr. Chum ChH., owns a small piece of land (0.2 hectare) to cultivate rice. Mrs. CH. Sy T. is 29 years old and the mother of two children, one of whom attends the local school and one is too young to work or study.
