Mrs. Neang Mak Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Neang M. Village Bank Group is made up of 10 members, who live in Heang Kong village in Kandal province. Together, they are seeking a village bank loan. They will each use the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Neang M. has been selected as the village bank president by its members. She and her husband, Mr. Ping S., are farmers. They own a plot of land where they cultivate rice to support their family. Although they work hard, they are only able to produce a little rice, because the soil is infertile and their field far from the irrigation system. Therefore, Mrs. Neang M. is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer and fuel for farming.

Mrs. Neang M. is the mother of six children. One of her children is a mirror cutter; two are seamstresses in a garment factory, while the others attend the local public school.

In this group: Neang, Tach, Srorn, Thea, Yon, Ell, Soklim, Phall, Phan, Savy
