Mrs. Phalla Eng Village Bank Group's story

Mrs. Phalla E. is 30 years old and is a village bank president, selected by sixteen people who make up a village bank loan located in Koun Chreae village, Kandal province. Each member will use their portion of the loan for various ways that can improve their businesses in the current year. Mrs. Phalla E. is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice, which she sells to help support her family. Her husband, Mr. Chun Phorl, is a pig middleman who is able to earn a little money to support his family. It is planting time on the farm and she needs to improve production, so she is applying for a loan to buy rice seed, and to hire a plow machine to plow her field. This couple has three children, one of whom is enrolled in the local public school, while the others are too yoU. to work or study.
