A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy fertilizer.

Mrs. Pov Me Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Pov M., born in 1965, is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice – not to sell, but for her family. Aside from this, she is also a pig breeder, while her husband, Mr. Sophorl Chea, is a lumberjack. Now she has a problem because her field has infertile soil. So, to improve production, Mrs. Pov M. is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer. With the rest of the loan, she will buy gasoline and piglets, and rent a plow machine to plow her field. She is the mother of seven children: two are seamstresses in a garment factory, while another is helping the father do business, and the others are attending the local public school.

Eleven people make up this village bank and live in An Long Barang village in Kandal province. Mrs. Pov M. is the village bank president, selected by the other members. The members will use their portion of the loan in varied ways.

In this group: Pov, Rin, Vanney, Sophorn, So Chea, Sok Lorn, Rann, Aoeut, Thary, So Pheap, Rem
