Mrs. Chheng Koem Village Bank Group's story

Twelve people make up this village bank loan, all of whom are villagers in Tep Archun village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chheng K. is the village bank president, selected by all the members. Each member will use their loan for a different purpose.

Mrs. Chheng K. is a mother of four children, two of whom are construction laborers while the others attend a local public school. She is a farmer who owns one-hectare of land to grow rice and crops to sell to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Chorn Chory, is a construction worker. On her the farm, Mrs. Chheng K. has some problems because her field is infertile and is also far from an irrigation system. Thus, in order to improve her rice production, she has decided to apply for a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline. With the rest of the loan, she wants to hire farmers to plow her field.
