A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy a water pump and some hose to irrigate his field.

Mr. Ny Say Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan, which consists of fifteen people, is located in Khmot village in Kandal province and each member will use the loan for a different purpose. Mr. Ny S. is the village bank president.

Mr. Ny S. is a farmer who owns a piece of land on which he grows rice. In this farming activity he now faces a small problem because he does not have enough money to fix the water pump to irrigate the rice field. Thus, he decided to ask for a loan to buy one and he will use the rest of the loan to buy more hose to water his field.

Mr. Ny S. is 47 years old and the father of four children, three of whom are attending the local school while the youngest one is too young to work or study because this child is only five years old. Mr. Ny S.’s wife, Mrs. DU. Yong, is employed in a garment factory.

Mrs. Kemla ChU., Mrs. Samoen M., and Mrs. Seryrin M. did not come to take their loans but their husbands did, so they are shown in the photo.
