Sophon's Group's story

This village bank loan is made up of 14 villagers from Chrouy Pisei village in Kandal province. Each member of this group will use their portion of the loan to support their different businesses.

Mrs. Sophon C., 40, has been selected as the village bank president by the other members. She is a farmer who owns one hectare of land for cultivating rice. She will use the loan to buy a grass-cutting machine for cutting vegetation on her farm.
