Mrs. Sokhom Mey Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Sokhom M. is 41 years old and lives in Kansaom Ak village in the Takeo province. She is a village-bank president of a group that consists of 10 people. She and her husband, Mr. Sokhoeun L., are farmers who own a 1-hectare field for cultivating rice.

On this farm, they now face a problem because the field has infertile soil and not enough water to support the crop. Thus, Mrs. Sokhom M. decided to ask for 300,000 Riel from AMK, a Kiva partner, to buy fertilizers and to hire a watering machine to support her rice field.

Mrs. Sokhom M. has two children, both of whom are enrolled in the local school.

In this group: Sokhom, Sinorn, Narin, Nerm, Channy, Sophal, Sary, Vannak, Sokhorn, Saroeun
