A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy fertilizer.

Mrs. Ny Pra Village Bank Group's story

Fourteen members make up this village bank loan and they live in Prey Slaeng village in Takeo province. Mrs. Ny P., who was born in 1977, 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. Ny P. and her husband, Mr. Kam Sort Yun, are farmers who own a 1.5-hectare (3.75-acre) plot of land that they use to cultivate rice, not to sell but to support their family. Mr. Kam Sort Yun is also a construction worker.

Mrs. Ny P.’s problem is that her field has infertile soil but she does not have enough money to support it. So, to improve her production rice, she is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer.

Mrs. Ny P. is the mother of five children, one of whom is a construction worker, another three are enrolled in the local school, while the youngest one is only a year old.
