A loan of $2,350 helped a member to grow rice during this growing season.


Mrs. Chroeun Seng Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has sixteen members who live in Phnum Lonteah village in Takeo province. They will each use the loan for a different purpose. Mrs. Chroeun S. is the village bank president who has been selected by the members. She is a farmer who owns a small 1.5-hectare (3.75-acre) piece of land on which she cultivates rice to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Saret Phor, is a motorbike taxi driver. In the rice field, they have a problem because it is time to farm but they do not have enough money to grow their crop. Hence, Mrs. Chroeun S. decided to apply for a loan to grow rice during this growing season. This couple has four children, three of whom are attending the local public school, while the other is too young to go to school or work.
