A loan of $1,700 helped a member to buy rice seed and fertilizer.

Mrs. Ken Chhoeng Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Ken C. works as a pig breeder at home. Her husband, Mr. Sang Sem, is a farmer who owns a 1 hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to support the family. With this activity, the couple supports three children: two of whom are enrolled in the local public school while the youngest one is 5 years old. Nowadays, they have some problems because it is time to plant, but they do not have enough rice seed and the field has infertile soil. So, to improve production, Mrs. Ken C. is requesting a loan to buy rice seed and fertilizer.

Eighteen people make up this village bank loan and they are villagers in Rovieng village in Takeo province. Mrs. Ken C. is the village bank president, selected by the other members. They will each use a small piece of the loan for different purposes.
