A loan of $2,800 helped a member buy fertilizer, gasoline and rent a plow.

Mrs. Heng Kith Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan has fifteen people who live in Sampan Leu village in Kandal province. Heng K. is the village bank president, selected by the other members. Each will use a piece of the loan for different purposes. She and her husband are farmers who own a plot of land to grow crops to sell to support their family. Their field is infertile and it is far away from an irrigation system. So to improve production, Heng is applying for a loan to buy fertilizer and gasoline and to cover the cost of renting a machine to plow her field. She is a mother of four children, two of whom are employed in a casino club. Another is a cane seller. The youngest attends a local public school.

In this group: Heng, Bopha, Haisoem, Sophal, Darin, Tol, Savon, Mom, Thoeurn, Na, Chhunleng, Noav, Chantha, Sim, Heng
