Mrs. Chann Yoem Village Bank Group's story

Sixteen people, who live in Damnak village in TaK. province, make up this village bank loan. Mrs. Chann Y., who was born in 1960, is the village bank president, having been selected by the other members. Each member will use their portion of the loan for a different purpose. Mrs. Chann Y. is a vegetable and pork seller in her local village where she is able to earn a large profit to support her family. She is also a pig breeder while her husband, Mr. Ly Meun, is a farmer who owns a one-hectare (2.5-acre) plot of land that he uses to cultivate rice to sell to support the family. Since her current business is going sell, Mrs. Chann Y. wants to expand it. So, to achieve this purpose, she is applying for a loan to buy more pork and vegetables to sell. With the rest of the loan she will buy pig feed. Mrs. Chann Y. is the mother of three children who are attending school and also helping with their parents’ businesses.
