A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy fertilizer.


Mr. Sareth Kung Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan consists of sixteen people who live in Krasang Pul village in Takeo province. Mr. Sareth K., who was born in 1966, 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.

Mr. Sareth K. and his wife, Mrs. Srey Sum, are farmers who own a three-hectare (7.5-acre) plot of land that they use to cultivate rice to sell to support their family. Mr. Sareth K. is also a vice village chief and his wife is a farm laborer.

Mr. Sareth K.’s problem is that his field has infertile soil. So, to improve his rice production, he is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer.

Mr. Sareth K. is the father of two children, one of whom is a seamstress in a garment factory, while the other is studying in school.
