A loan of $2,350 helped a member to do farming.

Mr. Vai Sam Village Bank Group's story

In Chheu Teal village, in Kandall province, there are fourteen people who are taking out a village bank loan. Mr. Vai S. is the village bank president, selected by all the members. Each will use their portion of the loan for a different purpose. He and his wife, Mrs. Sok Lorn K., are farmers who own a one-hectare plot of land to grow rice and vegetables to sell to support their family living.

Their problem is that their field is ready for farming, but they did not have enough money. So to improve production, Mr. Vai S. is requesting a loan to do farming. He is a father of seven children: two are farmers, four are attending a local public school, and the last is too young to work or study.

In this group: Vai, Vanneth, Moeurn, Channy, Chanrady, Chamnab, Sovann, Huy, Eit, Shitha, Shivorn, Sary, Dy, Bech
