Mrs. Lach Kong Village Bank Group's story

This village bank loan consists of fourteen people who live in Rumchek village in TaK. province. Mrs. Lach K., 55, is the village bank president selected by the other members who will use their portions of the loan for different purposes.

Mrs. Lach K. is a farmer who owns a 0.5-hectare plot of land to cultivate rice to sell to support her family. She also sells Khmer noodles and desserts in the local village. Although Mrs. Lach K. works hard, she earns little money. To improve her family's living standards, she is seeking a loan to start a new business by buying some piglets for breeding. Mrs. Lach K. is a widow with two children: one is a rock breaker and the other is employed in a printing house.
