A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy fertilizer.

Mrs. Chanthal Taen Village Bank Group's story

This is a village bank loan consisting of seventeen people in Trapeang Krouch village in Takeo province. The members have selected Mrs. Chanthal T. as the village bank president.

Mrs. Chanthal T. was born in 1963. She is a farmer who owns two-hectares of land to cultivate rice to sell to support the family. She also breeds pigs. Her challenge is that her field has infertile soil. In order to improve production, Mrs. Chanthal T. is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer. She will use the rest of the loan to buy rice seeds and pesticides. Her husband, Mr. Van Brak, is a teacher at the local school. This couple does not have children, so they live in a three person household.

Mrs. Ra Ten and Mrs. Run Ham are group guarantors so they are also present in the photo. All the members are shown in the picture save for one of them who is blocked.
