A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy fertilizer and corn seed.


Mrs. Chanthy Seoun Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan is made up of twelve members who live in Tep Archun village in Kandal province. Mrs. Chanthy S. is the village bank president who was selected by all the members. They all will use the loan for different purposes. She and her husband, Mr. Sovan Chhoeurn, are farmers who own a plot of land to grow crops for supporting their family. However hard this family tries to work, they cannot earn enough income because their field has infertile soil. Thus, in order to improve their crop production, Mrs. Chanthy S. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer, and with the rest of the loan she would like to buy corn seed. She is the mother of five children, one of whom is a farmer, while the others are attending a local public school.
