Mrs. Youn Chea Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Youn C., 56 years old, is the village bank president of this group loan and was selected by its sixteen members. The group is located in Saing Sarinn village in Takeo province. The members will use their portions of this village loan to support their individual business purposes.

Mrs. Youn C. and her husband, Mr. Sor C., are farmers who own a plot of land where they cultivate rice. In ths way, they are able to earn a small income to support their family. They have four children: two are seamstresses in a local garment factory and the other two are students as well as working as beauticians in the local village. It is to support their business endeavors that Mrs. Youn C. has decided to ask for a loan: she wishes to buy beautician supplies in order to support her children's business.

In this group: Youn, Savon, Sary, Sok, Sorn, Yem, Khley, Sophal, Vann, Srey Mao, Rady, Kunthea, Soeng, Heng, Koeun, Sreyny
