A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy pesticides.


Mrs. Near Soeng Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has nine people who all live in Kandal village in Kandal province. Mrs. Near S. is a village bank president who has been selected by all the loan members, who use the loan for different purposes. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice for supporting her family. Her husband, Mr. Hung Horm, is a construction laborer.

In the rice field, they have had some problems because it has a lot of insects and it is far from an irrigation system. Thus, Mrs. Near S. decided to ask for a loan to buy pesticides and will use the rest of the loan to buy fuel to improve the production of rice. She is a mother of three children, one of whom is a laborer, while the others are attending a local public school.
