Mrs. Vasna Maen Village Bank Group's story

Eighteen people make up this village bank loA. and they live in Kampong village in the Takeo province. Mrs. Vasna M., born in 1970, is the village bank president who was selected by the other members. They will use their portions of the loA. in various ways to support their families.

Mrs. Vasna M. and her husband, Mr. Sokoeun Kong, are farmers who own a 1-hectare plot of land in which to cultivate rice to sell to support their family; moreover, she is a Khmer cake seller in the local village while her husband is a barber. Through those activities, they are trying to work a lot but they cA. earn very little money to support their family.

So to improve this condition, Mrs. Vasna M. is seeking a loA. to buy two piglets for breeding to start a new business. With the rest of the loA., she will purchase fertilizer. She is a mother of five children, two of whom are seamstresses in a garment factory, while two others are studying in school and the youngest one is 6 years old.
