Mrs. Sopha Sang Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan is made up of fourteen people, all of whom are villagers in Kampong Svay Leu village in Kandal province. Mrs. Sopha S. is the village bank president who has been selected by all the group members. Each member will use their loan for a different purpose.
Mrs. Sopha S. is a farmer who owns a plot of land to grow brown sapote and vegetables, which she sells to support her family. Her husband, Mr. Yoeurn Y., is a construction worker. In growing brown sapote, Mrs. Sopha S. has a problem because the field has a lot of insects and she does not have enough money to address this problem. Therefore, she has decided to ask for loan to buy pesticide to protect her field. With the rest of the loan she would like to build a toilet for personal use. Mrs. Sopha S. is a mother of five children – one is a seamstress in a garment factory while the others attend the local public school.
