A loan of $2,150 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed.

Mrs. Choen Chhay Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has twenty people who are living in the village of Prasat in Kandal Province. Mrs. Choen C. is a village bank president who has been selected by all the members. They will each use the loan for a different purpose.

Mrs. Choen C. and her husband, Mr. T. Yeung, are farmers who own a plot of land for cultivating rice to support their family. Through this activity, the couple supports four children. One of their children works in a garment factory, and another child sells sugarcane juice. Their other children are enrolled in local public school. In their rice field, they have some problems: the rice field is infertile, and they do not have enough rice seed. Thus, in order to improve productivity, Mrs. Choen C. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rice seed.
