A loan of $3,450 helped a member to buy some piglets.

Em's Group's story

The village bank loan, which consists of twenty one people, is located in Trapeang Chrey village in Takeo province. Mrs. Em P. is the village bank president who was selected by the members. They all will use the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Em P. is 61 years old. She is a farmer who owns 2 hectares of land to cultivate rice to support her family. As a sideline, she is a Khmer cake maker. Although the family works hard with their rice field, they earn little income, so they want to start breeding pigs, but they do not have enough money to buy them. Thus, Mrs. Em P. decided to ask for a loan to buy some piglets and pig food. She is a mother of two children - one is a laborer in a garment factory while the other is a farmer.
